Project Description

Stormwater flows along the first kilometre of urban streams requires energy and nutrient loads to be managed effectively to ensure the downstream integrity of the riparian systems can be maintained. The Popes Glen Bushcare Group, with the support of the Blue Mountains Council have explored and implemented a variety of highly successful soft-engineering strategies to dissipate flow and extract excessive nutrients from the site before the waters flows over Horseshoe Falls into the Blue Mountains National Park.
