We're currently developing a water balance for the catchment, utilising information collated during the community workshops, as well as the feedback provided by partner organisations, external stakeholders and customers.

We look forward to sharing this with you when it's available. Thank you again for your input and commitment to the the project.

Imagine a neighbourhood where water is at the heart of its design. A neighbourhood with tree-lined streets, shaded parks, healthy waterways, and where the community is working together to positively impact the environment.

Is this a neighbourhood you would like to explore, maybe even help design?

We recognise that healthy, productive waterways are vital in helping our cities and neighbourhoods thrive, so we are changing the way we plan to benefit the Upper Merri Creek sub-catchment communities.

We are putting water at the centre of neighbourhood design in the Upper Merri Creek sub-catchment by using better urban landscaping and design approaches to mimic the natural water cycle and make better use of rainwater, stormwater and recycled water.

We cannot achieve this alone. We are calling on the community to work with us to develop a future vision and integrated water management plan for the Upper Merri Creek sub-catchment. This work will help guide the way we use water in homes and businesses, for agriculture, and for the environment.
