Revised guideline parameters for Melbourne Water


On 15/3/2014 the guideline parameters for Melbourne Water were updated.

The changes reduce the sensitivity of the MUSIC Auditor to avoid flagging submerged zone system parameters. The presence of a submerged zone is now identified as an advisory for the authority to check that the sizing and design of the system is reasonable.
The update also provides support for Version 4 models that have been run in version 5 or 6 and corrects a bug with auditing models with large numbers of bioretention nodes.

What is it and who can use it?
A tool for checking the parameter inputs to MUSIC models to ensure they comply with relevant guidelines and are within expected or reasonable ranges.

The MUSIC Auditor is free for anyone to use within Melbourne Water's area of responsibility. Council's can 'audit' models created in MUSIC submitted to them and consultants can check their own models before submission to identify anything they might need to adjust or explain before submission.

The MUSIC Auditor is intended for use by suitably experienced professionals with an understanding of water sensitive urban design and the use of MUSIC. It should not be relied upon as the final authority regarding appropriate input parameters. Rather it is intended to support users and assessors by providing guidance. The Auditor is not currently licensed or authorised for use outside Melbourne Water's area of responsibility and should not be relied upon outside this area for any commercial purposes.
