Melbourne Water extends a hand to help wildlife.

Wildlife-Victoria-93Wildlife Victoria would like to thank Melbourne Water for taking action to improve a large open drain at Ringwood Lake.


Many calls have been received on the Emergency Response Service over an extended period from concerned members of the public due to a large open drain in one of the lakes. Many ducks and ducklings have become trapped on this site and sadly many drowned.


Following correspondence from Wildlife Victoria CEO Karen Masson, Melbourne Water designed, built and installed a functional cover for the drain. The solution implemented, should help protect the local duck population and prevent further ducks drowning.
