St Ann’s Living, Old Beach, Tasmania

Ocean Protect was specified by Morgan McGuire from Aldanmark Consulting Engineers to undergo the first Filterra® system installation in Tasmania, and the first Filterra® precast pit design in Australia. The Filterra® system was installed for St Ann’s in Old Beach, Tasmania, and was approved by Brighton Council.
Filterra® is a highly effective system that is well-suited for the ultra-urban environment with proven high removal efficiency for many toxic substances such as petrol and heavy metal.
Filterra® is a Stormwater Bio-retention filtration system, which has been optimised for high volume/flow treatment and high pollutant removal. Its small footprint allows it to be used on highly developed sites, such as landscaped areas, parking lots, and streetscapes. Filterra® is exceedingly adaptable and can be used alone or in combination with other BMPs.
In terms of value, aesthetics, ease of maintenance, versatility, and sustainability Filterra®, ticks all the boxes.
Currently, there are three of nine units installed at the Old Beach development, where the Filterra® Treatment system became active on Monday 4th of June 2018.
