Riparian Corridor Restoration and Stormwater Management
Ormeau/Kingsholme

Boral Construction Materials and Cement Queensland works closely with its stakeholders to maintain the environmental and community value of the Pimpama Creek Corridor.

Boral developed a comprehensive and coordinated program of works that would restore over 12 hectares of the Pimpama Creek riparian corridor on its site to a pre-clearing remnant condition.

In 2015, this involved:

  • Building a major stormwater management infrastructure on Boral's quarry site and planting 25,500 endemic seedling to improve water quality and the environment of the Pimpama Creek.
  • Undertaking riparian corridor restoration works which involved native seed collection from the site and surrounding area and nursery propagation of around 28,000 seedlings.  
  • Maintaining 20 years of partnership with Landcare to achieve a continuous riparian zone along the upper reaches of the Pimpama River, improving waterway health and providing a wildlife corridor.
