We’re planning to complete a dam safety upgrade to Cardinia Reservoir in the summer of 2024/25, to protect and prolong the life of one of Victoria’s most pristine water catchments that supplies Melburnians with world-class drinking water.
- Christmas Hills
We are planning to transfer 280 hectares of our land to the Crown for conservation purposes, and rezone and sell the remainder on the open market. The land was previously earmarked for the Watsons Creek Storage Reservoir.
Melbourne Water will be conducting rehabilitation works to the Church Street Main Drain in Hawthorn between Church Street and College Street Hawthorn.
- Macedon Ranges
This three-year project is trialling the financial and environmental benefits of urban green waste mulch under vines in the Macedon Ranges. Certified compost has been placed in vine rows at three vineyards and are being compared to control row with standard practices (brushcutting under vine). Electronic data loggers are being used to monitor progress hourly and grape quality is being assessed at each annual harvest.
