Why is the Merri Creek so Muddy?


Dangerous chemical spill could have polluted Merri Creek


Proposed Regional Park in Hume and Whittlesea

Major improvements were achieved after a long battle against the F2 freeway (or Craigieburn bypass), including route re-alignment outside of the significant grasslands, state of the art stormwater protection measures, and a commitment to the creation of a major new park along Merri Creek.


Urban Growth threatens the upper Merri

Urban sprawl eating up rural areas in the mid-Merri is another major issue of concern to MCMC. Sprawl has implications for water quality and quantity in the Creek, as well as for habitat values and linkage and a host of other issues. Major new sewerage development to service the sprawl is required and this has its own impacts. It is clear that the freeway and sprawl issues are closely interrelated.
