Cicil and waterway construction

Artificial wetlands are water detention areas that are constructed to achieve one or more of the below objectives:

  • Control of stormwater – reduction of peak flows and removal of nitrogen, suspended solids and heavy metals
  • Surface water management
  • Floodplain enhancement
  • Habitat creation – for both native and migratory wildlife

Platypus is able to design and construct wetlands for all of the above purposes, specific to local conditions and taking into consideration the pre-existing habitat.

Our skilled excavator operators are experts in the digging, moving and positioning of materials to create highly-efficient wetland environments.
