Sydney Storm Water Project Complete

Nov. 13, 2006

Storm Water quality in Sydney, Australia, should improve now that the $19.4 million clean-up program has been completed.

The program began in 2000 at 26 different sites across Sydney. The completion was announced by David Campbell, NSW Minister for Water Utilities.

According to The Age, the program consisted of installing devices to trap sediment and pollutants, and also included public education campaigns in addition to water quality monitoring and planning.

Campbell told The Age that the devices should collect 750 cubic meters of litter and 950 tons of sediment. One of the largest projects was the creation of wetlands at a golf course to reduce contaminants that enter Rose Bay. This should protect sea horses living in the area’s sea grass.

Other program sites include Paramatta, Strathfield, Wentworthville, Darlinghurst, Botany, Lidcombe, Eastlades and Yagoona.
