Maribyrnong Stormwater Management Plan Industry Audit Program Final Report

Andrew Arendsen / Maribyrnong City Council


Stony Creek is an urban waterway collecting stormwater runoff from industrial and residential sources in West Metropolitan Melbourne, ultimately draining into the Yarra River. Within the jurisdiction of the Maribyrnong City Council (Council), Stony Creek is surrounded by an intense concentration of industry and consequently any contaminants that may arise from industrial activities can easily make their way to the Creek.

Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) was commissioned by the Maribyrnong City Council to undertake an Industry Audit Program of a range of industries in Tottenham and West Footscray to identify the main threats to the stormwater quality entering Stony Creek, and to make recommendations to improve stormwater management at the industrial sites.
