Wingate Basin is complete

7th June 2016 | John Gransbury

McMahon Services have done a great job in completing this technically difficult project on time and within budget. The compacted clay liner has been covered with topsoil ready for planting. The embankments have a sprinkler system to assist establishment of grasses and native plantings, and the flat bottom of the basin will maintain wetland plants to protect the clay and maintain habitat. Two submersible pumps will be able to lift 52 ML/d (600 L/s) into the basin to fill it in 8 days when a flood allows harvesting to commence.
