Cup and Saucer Wetlands

Sydney Water

12 March 2013

Sydney Water has produced a fantastic educational video bringing to life their project, Cup and Saucer Wetlands.  This is a great multimedia tool for promoting the benefits of constructing wetlands.

Cup and Saucer Wetlands is the first step in Sydney Water's Cooks River Naturalisation Project. It was built in 2010 and provides a habitat for local birds and aquatic life. The wetland cost $900,000 to build and filters water from Cup and Saucer Creek. The Cooks River Project has three more naturalisation sites planned. These sites are areas along the Cooks River banks at Belfield, Canterbury and Campsie. Construction will start at Belfield mid-2013.
