Residential Development Stormwater

Quality Management Plan

Location: Lawnton, Moreton Bay Region, QLD

Specs: 278 lot residential subdivision, 17ha development area

Summary

In support of the development application for the 278 lot residential subdivision located adjacent to Lawnton Lakes, the Stormwater Quality Management Plan was able to demonstrate viable mitigation of pollutant loading in storm water run-off by the use of bio-retention basins.

Through expert judgement and modelling the entire development (17ha) was able to have an appropriate stormwater quality treatment device fitted in accordance with local council and state planning policy. The resulting plan nominated two basins of sizes 782m2 and 1030m2.
