Wetlands project could lead to cooler summers for Canberra, UC ecologist says

    Description

    A network of proposed waterway improvements around Canberra will restore the natural landscape and could even reduce temperatures in summer, according to a local ecologist.

    Up to 25 waterway improvement projects will go ahead as part of a $93.5 million clean-up of Canberra waterways funded by the ACT and Federal governments.

    Professor Ross Thompson from the University of Canberra said the projects would help repair damage and pollution caused by Canberra's vast concrete stormwater system.
