Murrumbeena to Malvern Flood Mitigation Project

Melbourne Water is installing a new stormwater drain to reduce the impact of flooding in the area.

The drain will run from Railway Parade in Murrumbeena to Gardiners Creek in Malvern East.

We’ll make every effort to minimise disruption to the community and the environment.
