Waterfront: Western Treatment Plant
The Western Treatment Plant sustainably treats half of Melbourne’s sewage, and is a thriving ecosystem with an internationally recognised bird habitat. Join us for a two hour bus tour at this place of historic, environmental and cultural significance.
The size of Phillip Island, this Western Treatment Plant treats sewage using a series of large ponds, called lagoons — the largest of which can hold 600 million litres! Find out about Melbourne Water‘s important and innovative work to enhance Melbourne’s liveability – past, present and future.
Presented by Open House Melbourne and Melbourne Water for Waterfront – part of Melbourne Design Week 2020, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.
