Healthy Waterways Strategy: How does it fit into the current context?

  • This event has passed.

The Healthy Waterways Strategy (HWS) was released in 2018 and provides direction towards a regional vision for the health of rivers, estuaries and wetlands in the Port Phillip and Westernport region. It is a strategy that is shared across Melbourne Water, state and local government, water corporations and the community. It builds on a long-term regional vision for waterway health by providing detailed, catchment-specific visions, goals, long-term targets (10-50 years) and 10-year performance objectives for each of the five major catchments within the Port Phillip and Westernport region (Werribee, Maribyrnong, Yarra, Dandenong and Westernport).

This technical Webinar is a 2-part series and focuses on various angles of the Healthy Waterways Strategy. The series will explore perspectives from government (State and Local) and practitioners to get a peek into policy, guidelines and potential solutions for effective implementation.

The second session on the 28th of May will unpack the technical challenges of the Healthy Waters Strategy at the ground level by considering Local Government and practitioner viewpoint.
