They are also classified according to the objectives in ISO 24536:2019, Table 1, and are shown in Table A.1. The examples were provided by country representatives and adapted to the format of this document. In addition, although various standards and guidelines are described in Annex B , Table B.1 and Table B.2, they are shown only as a name and a reference URL. Table 1 illustrates the structure of the examples included in Annex A .
A design response was developed that addressed these criteria and was thoroughly tested during consultation with Birds SA, council, community groups and specialist ecologists. The design also provides a range of ecological habitats for vegetation and bird species, encourages visitors yet provides secluded areas where birds will not be disturbed. A.2.1.3 Outline This project was developed to rehabilitate a degraded area on the banks of Mt Barker Creek as part of a planned council depot construction. The central component of the project is a constructed wetland which will protect the creek from increased pollutants, provide habitat for rare and endangered bird species and become a recreational node along the Mt Barker Creek linear path. A broader objective of the project is to rehabilitate a range of ecological habitats surrounding the wetlands, including grasslands, wet and dry woodlands and riparian areas. Much of the impetus for the initiative is to improve habitat for a range of rare and endangered birds and therefore the design involved close consultation with Birds SA. The design provides a range of ecological habitats for vegetation and bird species yet provides secluded areas where birds will not be disturbed. Walking paths, viewing decks and a boardwalk encourage people to enjoy the wetland but manage their access and allow a variety of habitats to be created (riparian inundation, open grassland, tussock grassland and wet woodlands). The 6 000 m wetland was constructed in 2014 and an extensive search was performed to source local provenance plant species to use in the wetlands. A thorough mapping exercise was undertaken during planting to enable the wetland to serve as a seedbank for these rare local species into the future.
A.2.1.4 Organization Mount Barker District Council A.2.2 Stormwater harvesting and reuse in Murray Bridge A.2.2.1 Background Murray Bridge, South Australia, is situated on the banks of the River Murray and is one of the larger regional centres at the lower end of the Murray Darling Basin and an important hub for regional industries in the Lower Murrayland and Mallee Regions. Residential and industrial developments are a sign of the city ’s growing urban populations. Sustaining the city ’s many open spaces – parks, reserves and sporting facilities – is vital to the region and its local community. In addition, major subdivisions are planned at the Newbridge (Old Racecourse) site and Gifford Hill, which are proposed to include in excess of 3 000 dwellings, and will constitute a major proportion of the proposed expansion of Murray Bridge over the next 20 years. A challenge for Council is the provision of infrastructure that can appropriately manage the increases in stormwater runoff associated with infill and greenfield developments.
