Interested in joining the Painkalac Creek environmental flows community and agency group?

Barwon Water, in partnership with the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority (CMA), is forming a community and agency group to discuss the management of future environmental flows for Painkalac Creek.

Painkalac Reservoir has been taken out of service now that Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven are connected to the greater Geelong supply system via a pipeline from Anglesea.

We are looking for 8–10 representatives from a range of sectors including residents, businesses, local government and community, environmental and indigenous groups to join up to 6 representatives from Barwon Water and Corangamite CMA.

Group members should have:

  • a balanced view and a pragmatic approach to problem solving
  • an active interest in local environmental issues
  • strong community networks
  • a broad understanding of key issues in the Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven area
  • preferably live locally.

Expressions of interest are welcome until 5 pm, Friday 3 June 2016.
