Wetlands

Wetlands

Wetlands are a critical part of our natural environment. They reduce the impact of floods, soak up pollutants, filter urban runoff and improve water quality.

Wetlands also provide a unique setting for a diverse range of plants and animals.

Wetland developments in our municipality are an inventive way to recycle urban stormwater, removing pollutants from runoff.

They provide recreation areas (including walking tracks) and outlook. Wetlands are also an important habitat and irrigation water for parklands.
