Rockingham Industrial Zone


Rockingham Industrial Zone Water Management Plan

Client : LandCorp

Hyd2o were engaged by LandCorp to prepare a Water Management Strategy (WMS) to assist in obtaining environmental approvals to progress the development of the Rockingham Industry Zone (RIZ).The WMS was required to satisfy the condition of approval from both Commonwealth and State environmental agencies and to satisfy the local requirements under Better Urban Water Management.

The RIZ is one of the last remaining landholdings in the state earmarked for heavy industrial development and lies immediately south of the Kwinana Industrial Zone. The site is constrained by the presence of a number of wetlands and a groundwater dependent threatened ecological community. The threatened ecological community is listed as critically endangered under the Environmental Protection and Conservation Biodiversity Act. The WMS provided a water sensitive urban design approach for dealing with stormwater drainage from the proposed development in a hydrologically sensitive area.
