Is the Eric Singleton constructed wetland in Bayswater, WA, achieving its nutrient attenuation target? Find out in a one-hour Zoom webinar:
WHAT: Water Sensitive Cities Speaker Series Webinar – Assessment of the performance of the Eric Singleton constructed wetland in Bayswater, WA
WHEN: 10 am – 11 am (Perth), Wednesday 28 October 2020
Dr Carlos Ocampo, Senior Research Fellow at the Faculty of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Western Australia (UWA), will share his knowledge of the assessment of the performance of the Eric Singleton constructed wetland in Bayswater, WA. He will answer the question: Is the wetland achieving its nutrient attenuation target?
Reconfiguration of the Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary in Bayswater, completed in October 2015, involved installing a treatment train comprising a gross pollutant trap, sedimentation pond and a large marsh wetland area. Partial diversion of water from Bayswater Brook (< 200 L/s) flows through the treatment train and then out to the Bayswater Brook again prior its final discharge to the Swan River. The treatment train was predicted to remove up to 40 tonnes of sediment and rubbish, approximately 200 kg of total phosphorus (TP) and 1.3 tonnes of total nitrogen (TN) a year.
This presentation summarises the findings of a research project that monitored and assessed the performance of the Eric Singleton constructed wetland, undertaken by the University of Western Australia, and sponsored by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, the City of Bayswater and ChemCentre WA, through the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities.
