Waterway Management and Waterway Design

Why Waterway and Wetland Management Matters

Any works adjacent to or inclusive of waterways are required to undergo detailed ecological assessment or rehabilitation planning. The assessment and planning works to identify the key features, performance and processes of the waterway in question in order to align your project, as well as any future projects and expansions in future, with the legislative expectations and requirements around ecological study and waterway management.

Our Projects

Belle Eden

The Belle Eden Park Waterway Naturalisation is an exciting and innovative project for the Bundaberg Region, delivering an integrated approach to treating stormwater runoff, which is harmful to sensitive downstream waterways and ecosystems (i.e. Baldwin Swamp). It will also improve the biodiversity and ecology of the Belle Eden Park Waterway.

By restoring the Belle Eden Park drainage channel to a natural waterway, the project will improve stormwater quality and treat polluted stormwater runoff which is harmful to sensitive downstream waterways and ecosystems such as Baldwin Swamp.

This was done by reinstating a riparian corridor to reinstate the attributes and qualities of a natural waterway, and implementing a one meter rock-lined flow channel.

Martins Creek, Kuluin

The re-design of Martins Creek in Kuluin was designed by Evolve Environmental Solutions and was to provide stormwater solutions both in terms of quality and peak flow to the Maroochydore Soccer Club, nearby residences and the new Gem Life development bordering the Maroochy River.

Evolve is in charge of both the design and construction of this project, with the objective to improve stormwater quality and stormwater runoff which is harmful to sensitive downstream waterways and ecosystems. It will also eradicate restrictive weeds, improve the biodiversity and ecology of the Martins Creek, and re-establish locally endemic plant species.
