Reducing litter and sediment, and raising awareness in the Tanti Creek catchment (3070)

Melbourne Water

Project duration: 2017-2018
Funding: $100,000
Location: Tanti Creek (Mornington)

Tanti Creek enters Port Phillip Bay at Mornington.  This project will install a pollutant trap on a major drain entering the creek, which will remove floating and vegetative litter and polluted sediment.   Monitoring of other water sources into the creek will identify other locations where it may be beneficial to place a trap.  An erosion control structure will also be installed where there is active erosion to reduce sedimentation in the creek and bay.  These installations coupled with community activity involving cleanup and education aim to increase amenity.
