Boundary Road - Ecological Assessment

 

Stormwater Solutions was engaged by consultants on behalf of the Boundary Road landowner to provide an ecological assessment of a stream that traverses the site.

In order to fully utilise the development potential of the site, the intention is to divert the stream to a slightly altered alignment, whilst still providing ecological and amenity values, and stormwater conveyance to the downstream receiving environment.

The assessment, conducted prior to the construction of the residential development, provides a baseline Stream Ecological Valuation (SEV). The SEV survey score allowed Ecological Compensation Ratio (ECR) calculations to be performed, which informed the proposed on-site mitigation works and planting.

A planting plan was developed for the stream riparian margins as well as for a proposed wetland, which is to be created adjacent to the stream for stormwater treatment purposes.
