The Port Phillip & Westernport CMA is changing

9 February 2021

A big change for the PPWCMA has just been announced – we are going to be integrated into Melbourne Water as of 1st January 2022. 

PPWCMA’s responsibilities will be moved into Melbourne Water, so this means that the catchment management and waterway management roles for our region will be brought together under one organisation. Our staff will also transition into Melbourne Water.

There’s lots of planning to be done to ensure this happens smoothly, but we are very positive about the change and the benefits that will be achieved, knowing it is building on the strong relationship we already have with Melbourne Water.

We know the relationships that the PPWCMA has built with partner organisations and community groups will be preserved and the expertise, connections and projects that the people of the PPWCMA are known for will become an integral part of Melbourne Water.

Of course, we won’t stop doing all of the great things we are involved in. We will continue to deliver our existing services and projects throughout 2021 while also preparing for the transition into Melbourne Water.

We will keep you informed as the transition process progresses so stay tuned and sign up to our enews for regular updates.
