72 Landscape Architect and Specifier News A bifurcated Corten steel viaduct delivers water into bioretention ponds to be cleaned and released into the Guwali Wetland. The water scheme diverts on average each year some 221 million gallons of stormwater for treatment and reuse. The treatment train includes a gross pollutant trap, 5,000 square meters of bioretention systems, wetlands and the existing ponds. Untreated stormwater from the 494-acre upstream catchment previously flowed into the Munni Channel, then into the Alexandra Canal and into the ocean at Botany Bay. PHOTO: SIMON WOOD
