Caring for our local surrounds
Brisbane Airport's location next to Moreton Bay and the Brisbane River means that it is important that the water quality leaving our site has no negative impacts on the environment of these key waterways. The inclusion of water-sensitive urban design into new developments allows the Airport to treat stormwater runoff at its source and retaining mangrove lined drainage channels provides additional benefits to the water quality in those channels.
BAC's longstanding water quality monitoring program incorporates many locations across Brisbane Airport's vast site. The program encompasses both surface and ground water monitoring where water leaves the airport through tidal drains as well as at locations where tidal water enters the airport site. The program provides valuable information on our overall water quality across the airport.Media
