Living Links moves to Melbourne Water

14 December 2021

As you may already be aware, from 1 January 2022, the Port Phillip and Western Port Catchment Management Authority (PPWCMA) will be integrating into Melbourne Water. 

Living Links is coordinated by the PPWCMA on behalf of its partner organisations.

This means that the catchment and waterways management responsibilities across the Port Philip and Western Port region will come under single, integrated entity with a shared vision to improve and enhance our land, water and biodiversity. 

From this date, Melbourne Water will be the host and coordinator of the Living Links Program. Melbourne Water has been a longstanding partner of Living Links and will ensure Living Links continues its strong history of delivering on-ground outcomes through collaboration and partnerships. 

The PPWCMA is proud of its strong relationships with partners, Traditional Owners and community groups. The PPWCMA’s shared expertise, connections and projects will become an integral part of Melbourne Water.

Adrian Howard will be moving over to Melbourne Water and will continue as the Living Links Coordinator. From 2022 Adrian can be contacted at
