City of Swan Mayor Charlie Zannino said the project would |create a more natural system to carry stormwater from the drain’s catchment area into Bennett Brook.

‘The works will include a comprehensive revegetation plan, which will help increase biodiversity, provide habitat and enhance the connectivity and |resilience of Bennett Brook, which flows into the upper reaches of the Swan River,’ he said.

Work is expected to start in late summer or early autumn and continue until early winter.
