In April 2017 a consultant enquired about the use of a GCCM (Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite mat) in rehabilitating an eroding drainage channel for a local government authority, which they thought would be an economical solution to their problem. The channel was to be 3.2 m wide crest to crest and 100 m long. The objective was for the channel to be installed up stream of a new guardrail installation and to protect the new guardrail footings from being scoured in the event of a heavy rainfall event.

South Australia Cricket Association (SACA) and Adelaide City Council recently collaborated on the redevelopment of Narnungga (Park 25) which will include a new multi-purpose sports pavilion to replace the existing sporting clubhouses, improved cricket and football fields and a floodlit beach sports facility.

One of the biggest issues historically with the football/cricket field had been its undulating surface and poor drainage. This was in part due to the clay type soils typical of this region coupled with poor natural drainage. Therefore one of the most important aspects of the project was ensuring that the drainage was significantly improved to ensure excellent ongoing playing conditions during the wet and dry season for both SACA and the local South Australian Amateur Football league.
