Brentwood Park – Stormwater Retarding Basin – Overflow Channel Landscaping

Council constructed a stormwater retarding basin in Brentwood Park, Croydon in 2016/17. The retarding basin is designed to capture stormwater during larger storm events and will help reduce potential flooding within the surrounding area.
The construction included an overflow channel from the northern end of the basin to the existing drainage pit at the Lincoln Road frontage of Brentwood Park.

As part of the 2017/18 Capital Works Program, Council will be landscaping this overflow channel, including low-level vegetation in the channel base with rock mulch and low-level vegetation in the channel sides. There will also be plantings along the boundary of the reserve beside the fences of 132 to 138 Lincoln Road and around the drainage outlet at the southern end of the basin.
