Unity Park explores the biofilter, constructed wetlands and managed aquifer recharge system that is managing stormwater and providing an alternative water source. The wetlands and biofilter capture and treat stormwater before it is stored in underground aquifers. Over 150 km of ‘purple pipe’ then distributes the water, which is used to irrigate parks, reserves, and schools. It is also used in industry and for toilet/garden use in some new residential developments.
