Join Alastair McHarg (Senior Project Manager), the Melbourne Water Living Rivers program and Clearwater to visit the recently completed Alma Park Stormwater Harvesting Project in the City of Port Phillip.

This $2.7M project (highly commended in Stormwater Victoria 2019 Awards) has been undertaken as a part of larger park upgrade to improve recreation facilities and amenity for park users.

The project includes the following features:

  • A 230m2 bioretention garden to filter nutrients and heavy metals from stormwater collected from main drain
  • A treatment pump shed that includes ultraviolet treatment 
  • Storage tanks with a combined capacity of over one mega litre projected to collect and store over 18 million litres of stormwater annually. Water will be used for park irrigation to improve amenity and reduce potable consumption.
  • Grass cell access tracks to enable vehicle access while maintaining grass coverage
  • Innovative design elements that fully integrate the stormwater harvesting system into a heritage listed park

The site visit will include an indoor presentation and a site walking tour of the above project elements. Participants will be responsible for organising their own travel to and from the site.


Suitable for anyone involved in sustainable water planning or asset maintenance, including developers, planners, architects, environment and maintenance staff.
