Browns Reserve Drainage Pump Station Upgrade

Shape Copy 3 Future

Melbourne Water will be undertaking work to upgrade the Browns Reserve Drainage Pump Station from April 2019 to late 2019. 

The Browns Reserve Pump Station mitigates flooding in the Aspendale and Edithvale areas by pumping rainwater downstream to the Mordialloc Creek.

The project will improve the overall reliability of the pump station by providing automated, high capacity water pumping during flood events as well as emergency back-up power if a mains power outage occurs.
