Case study: Cooks River naturalisation

Sydney Water remediated 1.1km of deteriorated concrete stormwater canal along the Cooks River to incorporate more natural bank features with sandstone blocks and native plants. The $8.6 million project included over 100,000 local native plants, creating new areas of endangered saltmarsh, a freshwater wetland, as well as social amenities such as pathways, seating, interpretive signs, an outdoor classroom and a picnic shelter.
