Werribee River Volcanic Gorge

In 2005 PLEG gained a PP& WCMA (Port Philip & Western Port Catchment Management Authority) Grant for Werribee River Volcanic Gorge Restoration.

Western Water has contributed to this fund, enabling a major assault on weeds to occur.

This section of the Volcanic gorge has been made available for restoration  by the generosity of Woodhouse Holdings.

Restoration works commenced on a section of the river known as the Poa Flat area, below the Western Water Treatment Plant.
