The Old Port Road median will consist of wetlands and Aquifer Storage and Recovery (or ASR) which comprises a multi-objective stormwater scheme with water reuse, water quality improvement, and environmental enhancements all whilst reducing flood risk.

Old Port Road Wetland Civil Construction Works included:

  • Wetland civil construction works
  • Upgrade of vehicular and pedestrian crossovers
  • Pipeline infrastructure works to distribute water
  • Replacement of box culverts under Tapleys Hill Road intersection and relocation of gas main
  • Installation of a EcosolTM Trash Rack

As part of this project EcosolTM were pleased to provide a customisable primary treatment solution. After detailed consultation with Aurecon (Project Engineers), Bardavcol Pty Ltd (Principal contractors) and the City of Charles Sturt (Asset Owners) and in particular their asset management division, Ecosol designed a nine module stainless steel Trash Rack, incorporating into the design a fibreglass access walkway and removable fall protection barriers for ease of maintenance, whilst ensuring all of councils occupational health and safety concerns were met.

The EcosolTM Trash Rack are a cost effective and efficient pre-screening system for the wetlands and will capture gross pollutants until the nets reach their designed holding capacity, or in the event of a major rain event, when excess flows are designed to simply overtop the system. This by-pass facility helps eliminate any adverse hydraulic impact or potential for flooding during peak flow storm events.
