Environmental flows to Jackson's Creek

Environmental flows to Jackson's Creek

16.12.2011 - Posted by Leonie Duncan
Right now the Jackson's Creek is getting the best drink it's had in 15 years, with an environmental flow release of 200 megalitres over 10 days on the back of recent heavy rains.

Jackson's Creek is part of the Maribyrnong system in Melbourne's west and was the subject of a recent evaluation by Alluvium for the environmental flows team at Melbourne Water.

Given how close to the brink much of the Jackson's aquatic life came at the height of the recent drought, it is great news that the waterway's health is receiving a boost this summer.
