Mullum Creek sustainable development in Donvale (VIC)

Mullum Creek sustainable development in Donvale (VIC)

Water Technology is a proud member of the project team working towards the Mullum Creek sustainable development in Donvale (VIC). The 20 hectare Mullum Creek residential development includes 56 low density lots.  Over 45% of the site is dedicated to open space including two constructed wetlands, linear park and bike trail, and remnant flora and fauna habitat. The development will be released in three stages; lot layout and pricing for Stage One has just been released.

Water Technology provided advice on the drainage, waterway and water quality components of the site, focusing on replicating existing features whilst achieving best practice design.  Water Technology has worked closely with the Mullum Creek project team to deliver a stormwater management plan incorporating water sensitive urban design principles. Combined with the waterway management plan our wetland, swale, retarding basin and waterway management designs have kept in line with environmental and sustainable objectives of the project aiming to maintain healthy waterways while providing amenity and enhanced livability that is valued by the community.
