Clearwater News and Events

Clearwater welcomes a new year of working closely with our stakeholders and audience to continue to build industry standards, tools and collaboration to achieve best results for Victorian waterways and liveability.

Clearwater is currently working with partners to develop training for designers and assessors of Constructed Waterways and Wetlands. Training is being rolled out within Melbourne Water and will be available to the wider industry later in 2021.

In the coming months we will be launching the Online Navigator Tool and Resource Portal for Victoria's stormwater planning requirements, developed in partnership with DELWP, so watch our news and events page for annoucement of the launch date.
