Background

3.   The Gannons Park Water Quality Improvement & Stormwater Harvesting Scheme (Stage 1, 2 and 3) is a staged project that will treat and improve the stormwater quality at Gannons Park, Peakhurst.

4.   The Gannons Park Water Quality Improvement & Stormwater Harvesting Scheme Project has the following objectives:

a.   Reinstatement of Upper Boggywell Creek in Gannons Park;

b.   Improving the quality of urban stormwater runoff discharging to the Georges River by treating stormwater in a series of wetlands, swales and bio retention systems;

c.   Store, treat and reuse the treated water for irrigation of the eight sport fields within the regional park;

d.   Integrate the creek restoration, stormwater treatment and reuse into the fabric of Gannons Park thereby creating a significant upgrade of public open space and a new identity for the park;

 

5.   The diverted stormwater will pass through a gross pollutant trap (GPT) and then be channelled through a swale into a wetland and series of bio-retention systems where any sediments and pollutants will be removed.  The treated stormwater will then be stored in storage ponds, which will additionally serve as water features and provide an aquatic habitat within the park.  A new boardwalk constructed over the proposed wetland and storage ponds will eventually adjoin the newly constructed shared pathway in lower Gannons Park.  The treated stormwater will then be used to irrigate the eight playing fields in upper Gannons Park.

6.   The Gannons Park Water Quality Improvement & Stormwater Harvesting Scheme Project has three stages:

Stage 1 (completed): Stormwater pipe diversion structure, GPT, reinterpreted Upper Boggywell Creek (upper portion) and pond.

 

Stage 2: Wetlands, bioretention system cells, connecting pool, storage pond and extensions of bike track and boardwalks over wetlands.

 

Stage 3 (currently under construction): Installation of irrigation and drainage infrastructure to irrigate the eight heavily used regional sports fields in Upper Gannons Park.  Construction will involve installing a rising main from the storage pond, filtration and UV disinfection water treatment systems, header tank, and installation of automated irrigation system and drainage system in Upper Gannons Park.
