Water Sensitive SA

Living streams

Communities in urban areas are seeking connection with nature, while governments are looking for initiatives that cool urban landscapes and make our cities more biodiverse. Living streams offer a sense of place and community, connectivity and recreational opportunities along a network of linear trails. The act of daylighting creeks – opening up buried watercourses and restoring them to more natural conditions – brings stormwater to the surface, retains water in the environment, provides opportunities to slow the flow and remove pollutants, and enhance habitat for local fauna.

Acknowledgement of Country

Water Sensitive SA acknowledges Aboriginal people as the First Peoples and Nations of the lands and waters we live and work upon, and we pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge and respect the deep spiritual connection and the relationship that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have to Country.
