Adelaide's Northern Wetlands

August 27, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I knew that some of the northern city councils of Adelaide had created wetlands to help collect and clean storm water - then pumping it into underground aquifers for storage.  They are storing huge amounts of water this way. I didn't know, until I was commissioned to photograph some of them in June,  that these wetlands are often beautifully designed places located right in the middle of residential areas, providing the lucky locals with great places to walk the dog and play with their kids.
