Figtree Place is a water sensitive urban redevelopment consisting of 27 residential units located in Hamilton, an inner suburb of Newcastle, NSW, Australia. The site uses rainwater stored in tanks to supply hot water and toilet flushing demand. A two-year monitoring program for roofwater, tanks and hot water systems revealed that water quality improves in the roof to tank to hot water system treatment chain. Analysis of water quality from hot water systems and rainwater tanks showed compliance with the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.
