Stormwater modelling using MUSIC: MUSIC for local government
Attendees will learn how to accurately utilise MUSIC in the assessment of development applications where Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) is required.
The course is a mix of presentations, Q&A and interactive sessions with topics tailored to your learning requirements. It is typically held in-house at the Council and the program is tailored to meet the specific needs of the Council both in terms of attendees and local policies.
- Face-to-face training delivery tailored to suit your organisation and development assessment requirements
- Training materials containing: user manual (online and downloadable), presentation notes and worked examples
- Meals (morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea)
- Use of MUSIC software for the duration of the course (USB dongle) – view system requirements.
These courses are delivered on request. Please contact us to discuss your requirements:

Who should attend
This course is specifically designed for local government planners, development asessors and stormwater engineers responsible for the design of council assets.
Why you should attend
- Overview of WSUD – what it achieves, how it is integrated into developments, and trends with new technologies and science
- Review of the WSUD design and assessment process and how music helps to achieve critical elements
- The role of modelling guidelines – examples, interpretation in the assessment process and when deviations can be used.
- Developing a music model – key issues and common errors in translation from initial site layout to delivering on-ground assets.
- Interpreting music models and model outputs – correct results and how models should be reviewed against water quality targets and objectives.
- Information requirements – how to submit modelling results and outcomes, plus common information requirements for development assessment.
- Key WSUD assessment issues – what disciplines should be involved, how to assess compliance between music modelling and WSUD plans, plus other design issues.
