Maintenance of ABC Waters Design Features

INTRODUCTION
The Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) design features are natural systems that detain and clean stormwater runoff on site before allowing it to flow into the waterways and reservoirs. At the same time, they enhance biodiversity and the living environment. It is necessary to maintain ABC Waters design features properly after they are constructed so as to sustain their functions to detain and clean the runoff. This maintenance training workshop, a collaboration between CUGE and PUB, is designed for landscape contractors, supervisors as well as facility managers to build their capacity in the maintenance of ABC Waters design features.
