Stu Farrant, Southern Sector Manager
Whilst we have all basked in the fantastic summer weather in the lower North Island, contractors have been full steam ahead on the construction of the Norton Park stormwater treatment wetland (pictured). The dry conditions and lowered groundwater have enabled them to make good progress on the main wetland body, with planting and the stage two diversion to follow.
Morphum Environmental’s Southern Sector office, based in Wellington, completed the detailed design of the 4,000 square metre constructed wetland for Palmerston North City Council in July last year. Since construction began, the wetland has already transformed the park and drawn much interest from the community.
Completion is due by the end of February. We look forward to the wetland being filled and coming to life in the coming months.
