UM004KarabarRain gardens – Alanbar Street and Kenneth Place: Twin rain gardens - one within a roundabout and the other in open space - will slow run-off, with water-loving plants helping to remove sediments and nutrients. Both areas will be landscaped. The rain garden near Alanbar Street in open space has been designed to avoid the existing mature tree on the north side of the site and the path will be realigned to go around the garden. in design phase
UM015QueanbeyanWetland – Reserve adjacent to Morrisett Street: A new wetland, on the city-side bank of the Queanbeyan River near the low level crossing,  will improve water quality by trapping sediments and nutrients. It will also increase the area’s appeal as a recreational space. The design allows for some open space to be retained for existing activities such as dog walking.in design phase
