Better Bay Water Quality - Balcombe Estuary Riparian Restoration & Improvement (1017)
Balcombe Estuary Reserves Group Mt Martha Inc
Project duration: 2017-2018
Location: Mt Martha
The Balcombe Estuary and Creek is the largest most intact estuary on the east side of Port Phillip Bay. The quality of water in the estuary is impacted by a decline in local vegetation, increase in rubbish and human and pet use.
The project will restore and enhance the creek edge through weed control and planting of indigenous plants, removal of rubbish, pest animal control and the promotion of community awareness, with a view to improving habitat and water quality.
