Wetland Habitat at Leithland Care Home

In a built up area in the Southside of Glasgow, a wetland oasis can be found.

Using ponds as a sustainable drainage system has provided a habitat for many plants and animal species, along with reducing the previous impacts historic industrial activities have left on the land.

Diversion of water into these ponds with gravel weirs and reed beds has provided this site the ability to filter the water to remove pollutants. This is then licensed to be discharged safely back into a nearby water course.

This is reducing the potential impact of this site on the environment, not to mention the scenic view it provides to the local residents
