Clearwater News and Events

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,

It's been a busy few weeks in the lead up to the end of the financial year. 

Regional workshops
The regional rollout, supported by DEWLP, is in full swing with workshops in Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong all now completed. Our final workshop for this first series will be in Port Fairy on Tuesday June 20.  There are places left so register now if you're interested. So far we've had a diverse mix of people attend workshops and collaborate, share knowledge and network, bringing integrated water management (IWM) into focus.

Please read our regional news article summarising these events and check out our new Lake Wendouree case study

Planning & point-source pollution forums
In metro, we delivered two sell-out workshops in partnership with Melbourne Water's Living Rivers team. We ran a Point Source Pollution Forum, sharing lessons and resources and showcasing a range of council-led case studies, available below. 

At last week’s WSUD Planning Policy Forum we showcased four innovative planning approaches addressing gaps in WSUD planning policy. Stay tuned for some great WSUD planning resources and case studies in our July newsletter.
