VIC MW - Drainage - MWC Catchment (Polygon) 2019

Layer representing the watershed catchment of a waterway or the hydraulic catchment of an underground stormwater drain for each Melbourne Water drain / catchment number. MWC Drainage Catchment Layer is the most detailed catchment layer available. It is, more generally, a tributary of a major waterway and, more specifically, a major tributary area within a watershed (natural or constructed) of a major drain or watercourse. Captured primarily using topography (contours) and the existing drainage network.

This dataset provides a consolidated and consistent set of drainage catchments covering the entire Port Phillip and Western Port catchment area (Melbourne Water’s area of responsibility for waterways and drainage). The primary purpose of this layer is for the hydraulic modelling of catchments and waterways, and/or calculations.

Additional uses:

  • Asset creation and numbering
  • Flood Plain Mapping
  • Drainage Scheme Creation and Reviews
  • Water Resource Management
  • Responding to Land Development Enquiries
