Constructed wetlands. Kelso Park, Bankstown. -33.95 / +150.00
This may not seem like much of a wetland. However, when compared to the old concrete lined stormwater drain, this is an improvement! The conversion of the older stormwater drains to contain stands of vegetation are primarily designed to facilitate the removal of pollutants and sediments from urban runoff. They can a big impact on downstream wetlands.
