Water Technology has provided specialist flood analysis and design services for the Heritage Estate Residential Development located on Foxwell Road in Coomera, Gold Coast. The estate will provide 122 low-density residential lots ranging in size from 375 to 530 square metres. Water Technology has provided all specialist services relating to flooding and on-site stormwater quantity management (detention) for the development and assisted in securing development approval from the Gold Coast City Council.

One of the key aspects to the services was associated with the significant flood and drainage assessments required to provide a heavily engineered and modified central waterway corridor to service the estate. Through consultation with Council and civil designers, Water Technology was able to incorporate an online detention basin within the central waterway corridor for management of stormwater and flooding for the site, as well as assisting in mitigating flooding to the downstream catchment.

The project is currently the subject for detailed civil design for future operational works approvals through Council. Water Technology is continuing to provide specialist flood and stormwater services through the detailed civil design process and will continue to provide further assistance throughout construction as well as post-construction design certification requirements required for Council works approvals
