Marrara detention basin

Latest update

This project is now complete.

The project on the corner of McMillans Road and Henry Wrigley Drive in Marrara temporarily detains storm water flows from Anula, Moil and parts of Marrara.

The detention basin, combined with other flood mitigation measures, will reduce the impact of flooding on downstream properties.

The grassed basin floor and embankment detains water generally no longer than 24 hours after a large rainfall event.
