	%X Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) features are
increasingly used to treat and manage polluted stormwater runoff in urbanised areas. It is important to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the infrastructure in achieving their intended performance targets after constructing and operating these features
overtime. The paper presents the various methods of analysis used to
assess the effectiveness of the in-situ WSUD features, such as: onsite visual inspections during operational and non operational periods, maintenance audits and periodic water quality testing. The results will contribute to a better understanding of the operational and
maintenance needs of in-situ WSUD features and assist in providing recommendations to better manage life cycle performance.
