Permable surfaces to reduce water use in urban areas
St Brendans Primary School, 30 Collins Street, ANNANDALE Sydney submitted a development application to the Leichhardt Council for outdoor learning areas 30 March 200 (No. D/2009/110). At present the school has most of the playground covered with a rubber based material. It might be useful if this was made permeable, so that storm water would filter down and water the trees of the school. Alternatively there are systems for holding storm water which would not require the whole surface to be repaved.
