Beginning of MEG’s Brookfield Restoration Project

MEG’s restoration site at Arnolds Creek beside Brookfield

In 2008 Melbourne Water conducted extensive works cleaning up Arnolds Creek in the vicinity of Brookfield Village. Weeds, woody weeds, debris and accumulated silt were removed to enable water to flow freely once again. This picturesque site, with its remnant large Red Gums, Grey and Yellow Box and small Grey Box woodland remnant beside the newly created wetland, is a prime site for revegetation. It will become both an attractive park and wildlife refuge.
