Patterson Lakes waterways are public reserves that play an important role in regional drainage and flood protection. We manage them together with your council and community, so they can be used for recreation – while still maintaining their primary role as flood protection infrastructure for the community.
The Patterson Lakes Waterway Management Plan (2.07 MB, PDF) outlines key responsibilities:
- Melbourne Water manages the lakes, waterways and associated infrastructure (such as the tidal gates)
- Kingston City Council manages the beach maintenance services and schedule.
