Stormwater harvesting in Carlton North

We are developing an innovative stormwater harvesting system in Carlton North, which will provide an alternative water source for Curtain Square, ensuring a sustainable and long-term health of this green space for the local community.

The project includes the building of an underground storage tank, treatment system and pump station which will distribute water to Curtain Square. The implementation of the stormwater harvesting system will also mitigate and reduce flood risks to the local area.

This initiative supports the environmental and climate objectives outlined in our Council Plan 2021-2025 through sustainable consumption and preservation of our natural resources.

The project is supported by the Victorian Government’s Integrated Water Management Program. Works are scheduled to commence mid-2023.
