Lachlan’s Line is a great example of how we ensure the design of precincts is based on best practice water sensitive urban design to reduce potable water consumption.
We adopted a precinct-wide approach to stormwater management at Lachlan’s Line, the new gateway to Macquarie Park. This uses water sensitive urban design measures to reduce stormwater discharge, improve stormwater quality and minimise water consumption.
Our approach uses stormwater treatment devices such as bioretention rain gardens and gross pollutant traps to minimise pollutant discharge into Porters Creek.
