Cardinia Reservoir dam upgrade 

Shape Copy 3 Future

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.

Cardinia Reservoir giant pine scale removal


Melbourne Water is committed to preserving and protecting our water catchments and the local environment in your area. We are removing the infestation of ‘giant pine scale’ from Cardinia Reservoir and replanting the affected areas with native plants. These works will protect the local environment from further damage from giant pine scale and ensure the long-term biodiversity of the area.
