Watsons Creek

Action on Watsons Creek

Watson Creek is set to benefit from a federal grant to improve water quality. The grant recognises the recent agreement of all parties to address the issues without pointing the finger of blame.

 Sensitive_Environment_Waterways - Watsons_CreekWatsons Creek has a history of nutrient and bacterial troubles which pose a hazard to the Yaringa Marine National Park in Westernport Bay.

The grant will enable the communication of a shared understanding of Watsons Creek's environmental significance and encourage water quality improvements throughout the catchment.

EnviroVeg certified growers on Watsons Creek have reviewed their crop management and drainage systems to protect the creek.

Melbourne Water, Parks Victoria and Local Councils are also making significant contributions to the Watsons Creek action plan. With such good will and a little more rain, the health of Watsons Creek is sure to improve.
