Merricks Creek Somers

In response to stakeholder feedback Melbourne Water have been required to minimise the amount of sea grass entering the Balnarring Estuary at Somers.

The Seagrass was entering the estuary but due to low stream flows from the surrounding catchment it was not washing back out to the bay, leaving the sea grass to rot in the estuary and resulting in foul odors. Whilst a permanent solution is currently being designed by DELWP, WES have been able to implement a cost effective short term solution to the satisfaction of MW Project Managers, Somers Camp users and nearby residents.
