Wyndham City has committed more than $3 million to upgrade nine stormwater treatment wetlands from 2019 – 2022. Council will significantly extend the size of the wetlands and install gross pollutant traps to capture 95% of litter and solid waste before it can enter our creeks.

These wetlands drain to important local waterways such as Werribee River, Lollypop Creek and Skeleton Creek, which in turn flow to Port Phillip Bay, so Wyndham’s healthier waterways program will benefit the environment and communities beyond Wyndham City.
