New life for Heritage Infrastructure

Melbourne’s Main Outfall Sewer transformed into WSUD asset.

Biofilta, along with a range of industry partners delivered an innovative stormwater harvesting system/WSUD (Water Sensitive Urban Design) asset on top of Melbourne’s heritage listed Main Outfall Sewer

The Melbourne Open Sewer (MOS) was decommissioned in 1993 and a section in Williams Landing has been brought back to life in 2017!

This project was delivered as part of the Greening The Pipeline initiative which has the vision to convert 27km of the heritage listed pipeline into a linear parkland.
