VIC MWC - Drainage - Catchment (Polygon) Feb 2019

This dataset presents the footprint of watershed catchments of a waterway or hydraulic catchments 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 Westernport 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
