Clearwater News and Events

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,

Welcome to latest update from the Clearwater team.

It's been a busy period of planning and delivery for the Clearwater Program as we near the end of 2014. We continue to deliver our in-house maintenance training program to councils across Greater Melbourne as well as plan for our public training activities. More information on our public activities will be announced in the coming weeks. 

The recent release of the Melbourne Metro Framework has generated a lot of discussion and it's great to see industry associations and organisations initiating collective submissions to the Office of Living Victoria. Submissions close 6 October.

There is an abundance of industry awards taking place, including the innovative StormTV video competition. Clearwater's maintenance program was selected as finalist in the Stormwater Victoria Excellence Awards, and has more recently progressed to the next round of the Melbourne Awards. 

We share a number of new case studies, resources and industry events including the Water Sensitive Cities industry training day which is being delivered as part of the Conference.
