The overarching objective of the LSC project is to test whether catchment-scale stormwater retention could restore the hydrology, water quality & ecological structure and function of a degraded urban stream. But, in addition to restoring the health of the LSC, the project also has the following broader objectives:
The LSC Project was designed as a BACRI (Before After Control Reference Intervention) experiment, where, in addition to LSC (catchment shown as red in the adjoining map), 6 other streams are monitored for their condition. This includes 3 control streams (yellow catchments) that are similarly degraded urban streams but without our stormwater retrofit works and 3 reference streams (blue catchments).
