Coombs Ponds


Australian Capital Territory


Two major water pollution control ponds were the first infrastructure required to enable the development of the Molonglo Valley. Indesco provided engineering, landscape architecture and construction phase services for the 2 major ponds for Capital Works. The project involved hydrological and hydraulic analysis and design, major spillway design and foreshore reshaping.

Design challenges included making provision for future development surrounding the site and controlled catchments to minimise infrastructure provision.

Our innovations included development of an overall landscape masterplan (immediate and future) to be followed by future developments. We also minimised the primary spillway size and secondary spillway provision ensuring safe passage for more significant flood events.
