AAC builds $350,000 retention basin to improve the environment

(16/03/05)

A $350,000 water retention basin built at Archerfield Airport has successfully handled its first real test during the past month.

The Managing Director of Archerfield Airport Corporation (AAC), Gavin Bird, said during the recent wet period, the basin had successfully trapped extensive water runoff and disbursed it slowly into Oxley Creek via small pipes. The result was a controlled water flow with no environmental impact downstream.
