  5. FUNDING & MANAGEMENT ARRANGEMENTS • Properties do not pay general Waterways and Drainage Charge • Pay exclusive amount (precept charge) that deliver specific levels of service • Main carrier drains carry flows with 7 or 15 year ARI depending on location. Local drains may flood more frequently • In rural, flat lands drains carry flows with a 1 or 2 year ARI before spilling onto floodplain • Advisory Committee, consulting on levels of service and charging arrangements, has existed since State Rivers and Water Supply Commission become responsible • Melbourne Water has continued to consult with the customer committee • Regular meetings to monitor activities and discuss future service needs • Charges discussed on annual basis with ESC annual approval process

  6. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE WORKS • $1.2m per year – veg removal, desilt, banks stabilisation, weed control, channel grass mowing • Funded through a “precept rate” and developed with the KWRLFPD Advisory C’ttee • Driven by customer feedback and Risk Management Framework • Robust internal process to manage environmental impacts (SEPHA, MEMPs, AMP) • Clear advice from DSEWPaC on EPBC application to routine maintenance = increased certainty • In the process of improving asset management approach and systems to better set and maintain drainage levels of service (SAMP Pilot) • Drought saw LoS, and Precept pricing drop = decreased hydraulic capacity in drains • Flood has raised community expectations for flood protection LoS. In the process of re-instating LoS through priority works
