Yearly updates on the environmental water quality of the Bay and its catchments
Helping you protect & enjoy our waterways
The Bin Not Bay© Marine Environment Litter Program is an Australian Marine Mammal Conservation Foundation initiative designed to raise community and industry awareness and initiate action to protect the marine mammal environment in Port Phillip Bay.
Melbourne Water, in partnership with the Victorian Environmental Water Holder (VEWH), will commence an environmental water release (the Release) to the Yarra River on Friday 4 March 2016.
Otherwise known as a "summer fresh", the Release will improve habitat for aquatic life and will enhance the River’s health, countering the effects of recent low flows.
BehaviourWorks at Monash University in conjunction with Life Saving Victoria are looking for participants to sign up to a trial SMS text alert service that will inform them of days when there are fair and poor water quality conditions at their local/nominated beach.
