Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD)
Bargara Headlands Estate contains a comprehensively designed environmental wetlands which we call the Headlands Green. All of the Storm Water from half of the Estate will have a chance to be polished before it gets to the Ocean. This is called Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD). Click the image below to see the full design. This will be built as part of the Headlands Green Stage in the second half of 2021.
This is a drone fly through of the Headlands Green Wetlands at the beginning of 2023. This system is still only just getting established. There are various species of reeds that have been grown locally from seed from our other WSUD area. We have also just started planting through the overflow section. You can see the height of most flows through here, it does take a lot when it flows through here so we are trying to slow it down with the rocks but make it look attractive as well. The Bio Basin has local reeds and Melaleuca planted throughout. Again this is quite new and will take time to establish.
