Clearwater News and Events

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,

Welcome to this 'bumper' edition from the Clearwater team.

We highlight a number of key initiatives released this month by the Victorian Government. Melbourne Water begins the review process to update the Constructed Wetlands Guidelines as well as launches Round 2 of the Living Rivers Fund for Local Government.

Two upcoming events we are delivering on Tuesday 17 June include the Bendigo workshop on Introducing the Urban Water Cycle Planning Guide and our evening seminar delivered in partnership with AWA on Achieving Integrated Water Projects.

We feature an interesting article from abroad on Copenhagen's Green Plan and share a number of research projects completed and underway.

Do you have industry news or events to share? Contact Melissa Cordy.
