HydroCon pipes treat and harvest stormwater at Bondi Beach. WSUD supported by local government.
The project was one of three sites intensively studied by UTS over a three year period with funding from the Australian Research Council Linkages Program.
Council has developed a number of innovative approaches to road drainage using HydroCon pipes to infiltrate stormwater directly into the sand subgrade.
Development approval was given for the establishment of the Kinross Business & Industrial Estate due largely to the proven ability of HydroCon pipe systems to prevent contamination of groundwater.
HydroCon permeable pipes have been used successfully to improve stormwater drainage outfall at Altona Beach in Victoria.
The purpose of the project was to capture and treat runoff from the carpark and use the harvested water to irrigate the two playing fields.
The rezoning of the RAAF Stores Depot to a residential zoning created the opportunity for Mirvac to develop a cutting edge sustainable development at Regents Park.
