VIC MWC - Drainage - Natural Waterway Centreline (Line) Feb 2019

This dataset presents the footprint of constructed/modified waterway centrelines (lines delineating hydrological features). Captured by digitizing a line along the centre of a linear geographic feature (the channel alignment delineated using the top of embankment), includes the channel/drain name, a unique asset identifier, EPMS/asset section number (to link the object to associated drawings) and key attributes to assist with its intended purpose. When used in conjunction with the natural waterway centreline and waterway connector layers, this layer completes the entire waterway/hydrology linear (centreline) network.

This dataset is required to indicate the location and types of channels (concrete-lined, modified or constructed waterways) for asset management and maintenance works, to assess buildover or planning applications, for waterway rehabilitation works and flow management (helping maintain the flow of water and reduce the impacts of floods), ongoing condition monitoring and hydrologic modelling and analysis and to assist with the planning and design, construction of new waterway corridors and stormwater management (WSUD) options.
