"(The wetland site created by Norfolk Rivers Ecology)...is proof that there is a way to balance the way we treat and clean water, with broader environmental benefits and as importantly, without the need for expensive carbon-hungry infrastructure. It’s excellent for biodiversity, and does this job for us naturally. We’re already looking at where we can make scheme like this commonplace as a water treatment option in the future as it’s an excellent example of how by working together, we can provide innovative solutions for our treatment processes, ensure they are sustainable for future generations and protect the environment."
