David Fleays Wildlife Park – Water Quality Restoration Project

Project Description

Innovative and sustainable methodologies were developed and applied in response to the parks limited accessibility for machinery and the requirement to retain and treat sediment on site.

AWLQ used a small dredge to pump sediment from habitat ponds into geotextile sediment bags.The sediment was ameliorated and contained whilst  forming terraces to adjacent exposed batters. A vertical bio-­filtration system was built in the Top Dam to filter water pumped from the lower Ring Dam. Filtered water returns to the Ring dam via an attractive creek.
