The project is a funding and operational partnership between the City of Gosnells, the state and federal governments, the South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare and the Armadale Gosnells Landcare Group.
The project development phase concluded on 30 June 2013. The works address drainage water quality across the Cities of Gosnells, Armadale and Canning through a funding partnership between the Cities, State and Federal governments and the South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare. The City now maintains the sites under its asset management program.
The objective of the project was to improve the quality of water in tributaries and watercourses that feed into the Canning River, to contribute collectively to the reduction of nutrients in the Swan-Canning estuary.
Within the City four projects in Maddington and Kenwick were implemented along Bickley Brook, where water quality had been monitored by the City, Swan River Trust and the Department of Water and identified as a significant contributor to the high levels of nutrients in the water of Djarlgarra (the Canning River) and the Swan River.
Over time, the four Bickley Brook projects will improve the quality of water in the Brook, as well as the ecological value of this important tributary of Djarlgarra. The projects were implemented through an operational partnership between the City and the South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare, with the assistance of the Armadale Gosnells Landcare Group.
