Blacktown City Council and Healthy Land and Water have recently undertaken projects to update their specifications for bioretention filter media, transition and drainage layer materials. These projects arose from (i) gaps in the science related to media configuration to achieve desired outcomes and (ii) difficulties sourcing materials complying with specifications.
While the projects produced updated specifications, the above issues remain and it has been recognised that, in order to successfully implement bioretention systems in the future, they need to be addressed.
This joint 90-minute Stormwater Queensland-Stormwater NSW event will include succinct presentations from Blacktown City Council’s Mark Liebman and Ben Penhallurick, Healthy Land and Water’s Glenn Browning, University of Melbourne's Professor Tim Fletcher and Contech Engineered Solutions' Craig Fairbaugh, and interactive discussions and Q&A with attendees.
Registration is $10.
A certificate of attendance can be provided upon request.
