Yangebup Lake: Stripping Basins Project

- 20/01/2020

The Yangebup Lake is part of the eastern chain of the Beeliar Wetlands, managed by the City of Cockburn. As a result of past land uses such as farming and residential development, the lake’s water quality declined, and nutrient imbalances developed. BWC was then part of the solar-powered nutrient stripping project to rehabilitate the lake.

During this project, BWC was involved in:

  • Survey and set out of the project site
  • Clearing the site area
  • Removal and disposal of organic matter from the site
  • Detailed earthworks and excavation of 2 individual nutrient stripping basins
  • Excavation and installation of the storm water drainage components
