A Community Monitoring Program was undertaken to provide feedback to the community, the stormwater industry and council on the function and performance of vegetated infiltration basins in a dunal environment.
The monitoring program for the Golden Beach Vegetated Infiltration Basin was designed to collect and assess data for a range of parameters using appropriate sampling techniques.
The following information was collected:
routine maintenance details
This program has now concluded and the University of the Sunshine Coast has released their final report on the performance of the vegetated infiltration basin.
Maintenance of the basin is undertaken on a monthly basis. During maintenance litter, weeds and leaves are removed and over grown plants are pruned.
It should be noted that sewage spilled into the basin in November 2015. Sediment samples were taken from the basin floor in March 2016 and again in June 2017.
