What is 'daylighting'?

'Daylighting' is the process of replacing a piped waterway, with an open, flowing channel that more closely resembles the original shape and form of the creek. In this instance, it involves the removal of an 830m piped section of the creek between H.E Parker Reserve and the railway line in Heathmont.

Daylighting our Dandenong Creek will:

  • provide more opportunities for revegetation
  • maintain flow capacity
  • improve instream habitats
