Clearwater News and Events

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,

Thank you to everyone who completed our Water Drinks survey and congratulations to our winner, Sanaith Tavate from Baw Baw Shire Council! We received some great new ideas and insights. Some of you haven't made it along, but we'd love to see you there. Please let us know what's held you back - is it the location, start time, day or another reason?  Email our team your comments so we can keep improving Water Drinks - after all it's your networking event!

Place-based IWM planning seminars

A reminder to register for one of three Place-based IWM planning seminars supported by DEWLP. There are still spots left for the first seminar kicking off on 30 August in Ascot Vale, so register now. You won't want to miss hearing from our line-up of exceptional speakers. Transport options will be available from the nearest train stations for Westernport & Dandendong and Yarra catchment seminars.
