  5. Dewing Creek Restoration Works

Dewing Creek is a tributary of the Barwon River near the town of Barwon Downs. This project was undertaken in partnership with Upper Barwon Landcare Network, Barwon Water and Corangamite CMA to improve the quality of water flowing into Geelong’s water supply. The project was completed in early 2020 with over 30,000 plants being planted, 10 kilometres of fencing, 8 off stream water points and a total of 2.8 kilometres of waterway improved.

The investment in the Dewing Creek restoration works was approximately $300,000, with the outcome of improving catchment health and water quality to supply the needs of our growing population.
