The Parkes Wetlands project will transform the former sewage treatment plant maturation ponds on Akuna Road in Parkes into a wetland that will provide a habitat for native animals, a place for recreation and education, and a boost for tourism.
Announcement : Project Update:
The first drops of water have trickled into Parkes Wetlands, supplying the site with water for the first time in more than five years. While only a small portion of the total area has been flooded, waterbirds have already been observed returning to the wetland. Flows to the site will continue for several weeks until the ponds are flooded to capacity.
