Curtis Road Wetland

The Curtis Road Wetlands are an urban storm-water constructed system, receiving runoff from main roads and surrounding industrial and residential areas. Playing a major role in our natural environment including aquifer storage and recharge wetlands these wetlands are a vital asset in the health of our cities.

This wetland consists of seven ponds over two sections: a large capture/storage basin and a treatment wetland. The system treats storm-water before being drawn out into storage tanks and then pumped back into the aquifer for future supply to irrigate reserves and service industry in surrounding areas.

Our dedicated and passionate Environmental Services team undertook the task of planting 174,740 stems of over 43 species in the wetland without which it would not be possible for the numerous species of wildlife to inhabit this stunning backdrop for Playford Alive.
