Edinburgh Gardens Raingarden Rectification
Client: Melbourne Water/City of Yarra
DesignFlow was engaged by Melbourne Water to develop a rectification plan for the poor-performing Edinburgh Gardens raingarden. A holistic assessment by DesignFlow's engineers and ecologists revealed a number of design and construction issues for the raingarden, diversion infrastructure and gross pollutant trap. DesignFlow worked with all stakeholders to develop and implement a practical and cost effective rectification plan. Rectification works ensure the raingarden receives adequate flows and is protected from gross pollutants, the filter media has an appropriate drainage rate and untreated flows do not bypass the filtration system and enter the reuse tank.
