The Blacktown International Sportspark, in Sydney’s west is an elite international sporting facility, which requires substantial volumes of water for irrigation. The Angus Creek stormwater harvesting and reuse scheme extracts excess stormwater flows from Angus Creek and harvests stormwater runoff from the Sportspark’s hard surfaces, to irrigate the Sportspark and neighbouring reserves. This supplies up to 200ML of fit-for-purpose water per year. The scheme incorporates natural treatment processes from storage ponds, floating wetland rafts, a 3,300m2 wetland and mechanical/chemical treatment via screen filters, chlorination and UV disinfection to provide water quality suitable for spray irrigation with no access restrictions. Blacktown Council have just released this great information video .
