The Vertu living stream is located along Wright Road in the Vertu Estate, Harrisdale. It is surrounded by public open space which doubles as a stormwater detention basin. Flush road curbing along Wright Road allows stormwater to be treated in biofilters along the stream’s edge, before flowing into the Forrestdale Main Drain.
A number of the biofilters and detention basins have been integrated into the adjacent public open space to provide both stormwater treatment and amenity value to local residents.
