Alert: Following the earthquake on 22 September, Melbourne Water has enacted our rapid response and inspection program for all of our critical assets – including dams - across our areas of operation. Follow our updates.

Waterway diversions

You can 'divert', or take, water from the Yarra River, Lower Maribyrnong River and Western tributary areas for commercial and irrigation uses. Find out how we monitor and supply water diversion licences, and provide information about restrictions and bans to protect the environment when river levels are low.
