Astrolabe Park stormwater pipe renewal

We've replaced two large stormwater pipes under Astrolabe Park in Daceyville.

The project started in mid October 2015 and was completed in early 2017.

About the project

Under Astrolabe Park at Eastlakes, there are two large stormwater pipes that direct stormwater into Botany wetlands. These pipes were deteriorating so we replaced them.

This project has helped create a more sustainable and efficient stormwater system. 

The filtration system at Astrolabe Park includes a natural wetland. 

It's designed so the stormwater outlet runs into the wetland, which acts as a natural filter.

Work to replace two large stormwater pipes under the park started in October 2015 and was completed in early 2017.
We appreciate the community's patience and understanding during our work.

What did the work involve?

We replaced two large pipes under the park with new pipes about 650m long.

We constructed a new outlet and made some small changes to the wetlands to improve the reliability of the stormwater system and water quality in the wetlands.

How are wetlands used for naturalisation?

Wetlands have a significant role in improving the river’s ecology and health by treating stormwater run-off from streets and industrial areas before it enters the river.

Where have we used naturalisation?

We plan to implement natural stormwater solutions where possible across Sydney.

We've been involved in a number of other naturalisation projects, including:
