Alert Removal for Merri Creek

Water with shrubs

Please be advised that an alert relating to an oily sheen at Merri Creek - upstream of St Georges Rd, Fitzroy North - has now been removed.

The area was investigated but the source couldn’t be tracked back up the drain. We also haven’t received any more public reports since Sunday.
