Water shortages due to drought and climate change are severely impacting various places all over the world, including Australia, which has a history of drought. The government has used many different methods to lessen their effects. Even with all of these in place, the City of Boroondara is unsure of how their citizens are responding. One of the CouncilÂ’s main concerns is their communityÂ’s impact on stormwater quality. We addressed this problem by interviewing members of the community to determine the most effective method to promote the awareness of stormwater quality and becoming more water conscious. Our recommendation is for the Council to partner with Melbourne Water and implement a program promoting raingardens as part of Â“A Future towards Swimming in the Yarra RiverÂ”.
