WTP access update and virtual events coming up soon

We know for everyone that 2020 has been like no other year we’ve ever experienced!

Since our last update in May 2020, Melbourne Water has remained focused on limiting the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). This has meant that the Western Treatment Plant (WTP) has been closed to visitors and will continue to be closed to visitors until it is deemed safe to open.

We will assess this decision as restrictions ease and advise you of any changes as they come to hand so you can get back to enjoying this wonderful site as soon as it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, we have a number of virtual experiences so you can continue to visit and learn about the site:
