Melbourne Water is exploring a better way of collaborating to address catchment challenges, and is piloting this approach in the Moonee Ponds Creek Catchment.
Melbourne Water owns land in Christmas Hills which was previously earmarked for the Watsons Creek Storage Reservoir (WCSR).
We have almost completed the upgrade works. Aqua Metro Services, on behalf of Melbourne Water, are upgrading Dights Falls fishway. Works began in March 2019 and we anticipate that including vegetation works final completion will be in mid-September 2019.
The works were part of the final stages of the renewal of the M9 (Preston to North Essendon) and M102 (North Essendon to Footscray). The sections renewed run around and through the Essendon Airport. They connect to the North Essendon Reservoir site which contains five large tanks.
