About the Project:
In addition to 2 large bioretention basins, a treatment pond employs the use of biotopes
to treat roof runoff in this project.
Roof runoff is collected in a harvesting tank for auto-irrigation. Excess runoff overflows into the treatment pond and is circulated through the submerged planted biotopes scattered within the treatment pond. The vegetation in the biotopes are thriving on the nutrients in the water that is passed through their root zone.
The stormwater stays in the pond for treatment until the next heavy storm which will bring in "new" untreated runoff. This incoming runoff then displaces the "old" treated water from the pond to the drainage system for discharge into the waterway.
H2O Residences is a ABC Waters certified project.
