orange city council stormwater harvesting
This video tells the story of Orange’s pioneering and award-winning stormwater harvesting system. Water experts knew that urban areas produce much more run-off than rural environments. But could the water be ‘cleaned-up’ so that it could make a useful contribution to a regional city’s water needs? That was the challenge taken on and explored by Orange City Council in the wake of a record drought.
The Importance of swampy meadows
Tucked within the Neville State Forest is one of the last intact Swampy Meadow wetland systems within our region. This important wetland is a listed Endangered Ecological Community and was under threat of being drained by an active headcut within the creek that is downstream from the wetland (erosion within the creek moving upstream). See how this creek was rehabilitated using soft engineering principles and learn more about the importance of swampy meadows.
