Please provide all feedback on the guideline before March 8
We note there has been a recent literature review that questions the validity of certain aspects of MUSIC including the pollutant concentration parameters and flow reduction within the bioretention node. We have sought and received a number of independent comments and the topic was tabled at the recent MUSIC roundtable workshop with a diverse range of industry experts (refer Minutes). While we are reassured that the current approach in the guideline is valid, we see merit in exploring this further. We would promote further investment in field research and monitoring to clarify these issues if there was appetite.
