VIC MWC - Drainage - Waterbodies (Polygon) Feb 2019

This dataset presents the location and extent (water area) of Melbourne Water natural and constructed (man-made) hydrological features such as lakes, wetlands, lagoon ponds and bio-retention systems. Captured as a polygon (shape) using the Top Water Level (TWL), layer includes the wetland or lake name, a unique asset identifier, EPMS/asset section number (to link the object to as constructed drawings) and key attributes to assist with its intended purpose.

The data can be used to indicate the location and types of assets used for stormwater treatment (treatment and removal of pollutants from the stormwater system) and flow management (helping maintain the flow of water and reduce the impacts of floods), for ongoing condition monitoring, maintenance and hydrologic or vegetation analysis and to assist with the planning and design, construction of future stormwater management (WSUD) options.
