Wetland construction in Melbourne’s west

Earlier this year our team delivered a major wetland construction project on behalf of Melton City Council in the Weir View neighbourhood. Melton is a growing suburb on Melbourne’s western fringe and the development of constructed wetlands in this area aims to improve water quality and reduce the impacts of development on local waterways.

Working over a period of three months our team trimmed and reshaped existing bulk earthworks, rectified a sediment detention pond and completed rock work and lining of the wetlands. New drainage pipes were laid to manage water level and flows and a maintenance track was constructed to provide access.
