New Avenue Eco Garden has been designed to utilise the top corner of the development for surface water attenuation. The surface water drainage systems for the Phase 1 residential units discharge into the large pond within the Eco Garden. Storm water is stored in the pond and slowly discharges to the public sewer through a flow control device. The pond has a minimum depth to enable pond life to thrive and the water level fluctuates with every storm. The Eco Garden will be planted to create a natural environment that is gated to prevent resident entry, but a footbridge will enable residents to cross the Eco Garden and look down upon the pond.
