Improving water quality in Lake Burley Griffin.

Improving water quality in Lake Burley Griffin.

15 March 2019

Construction has started on three new wetlands in the Fyshwick catchment that will clean stormwater flowing into Lake Burley Griffin.

The Narrabundah wetlands will be constructed along 420 metres of Jerrabomberra Creek and include a chain of six open water ponds. It will deliver a wider and cleaner creek that improves habitat for fish, birds and frogs, and runs through improved green space for the community.

The other two wetlands will be between Eyre St and the Jerrabomberra Wetlands in Kingston and on Jerrabomberra Creek off Dairy Road. These wetlands will help improve water quality in the ACT, downstream in the Murrumbidgee River system, and in the wider Murray Darling Basin.
