Work has begun on a 10-year plan to capture, manage and reuse stormwater while protecting the environment in Hallett Cove.

The $8.3 million Hallett Cove Creeks Stormwater Management Plan was developed to address stormwater harvesting and creek erosion while seeking to improve the quality of water discharged into the Gulf St Vincent by upgrading the drainage network.

The plan, which targets a 715 hectare catchment area, also aims to enhance biodiversity along the Hallett Cove creeks and wildlife corridors.

Detention structures, which help control erosion, have been installed at Aroona Road, Barramundi Drive and Quailo Avenue, and recent drainage work at Ramrod Avenue will reduce the risk of flooding.

A draft Creek Ecological Transformation Plan is now available for comment and more information can be found on posters and signs in Hallett Cove, including the library, and online at makingmarion.sa.gov.au

The plan outlines work that aims to reduce erosion and enhance biodiversity along
Waterfall Creek.
