The catchment covers around 40 square kilometres across the four councils, most of which is within Glen Eira.
What is the working group doing?
All parties in the working group have signed the Elster Creek Catchment Memorandum of Understanding (PDF, 823KB), committing to core principles to address the problem.
They've also established the Elster Creek Catchment Action Plan (PDF, 832KB), which works under the key themes of:
- one catchment, one plan
- strategic planning
- informed communities.
