Living Links

News today: The launch of transforming the Dandenong Creek corridor into a World Class urban living link. Victorian Government has granted $1M to enhance the corridor between Bayswater North and Dandenong, to ensure habitat for a threatened fish species, enhance flora & fauna and improve water quality. Work will begin soon over the next 3.5 years.

The project involves Port Phillip Water catchment management authority, Melbourne Water and the councils of Maroondah, Knox, Greater Dandenong, Casey; Parks Victoria and local community groups.

 

the endangered Dwarf Galaxia species

The species of fish is quite tiny and is called the Dwarf Galaxias, it is Nationaly threatened and is currently being bred and established in small habitat ponds alongside Dandenong Creek. The pygmy Perch will also be re- introduced. The section of creek that is currently underground in a barrel drain, is to be removed and re-established as a natural water course.

 

CCS is proud of having assisted many years ago now in cleaning water further upstream at the Norton Rd wetlands. We hope to assist further with this new project, in terms of providing some trees to a friends of Dandenong creek group.
