Marrickville Council is aiming to create water-sensitive communities.

Working with residents and businesses, we are developing long-term management plans for each of the subcatchments in the Marrickville local government area.

What are subcatchments? In Marrickville, subcatchments are local watersheds where all the rain falling into an area flows by the same drain or channel to the same waterway. Rain falling in EC North Subcatchment flows to the Cooks River by the Eastern Channel.

The Eastern Channel North Subcatchment (EC North) is one of the subcatchments in the Marrickville Valley.

Council collected social, physical, water and land use information for EC North, including information from the 2011 Community Water Survey about what people think about local water management. Since April 2013, people in the EC North community have got together with Council to create firstly the Draft Eastern Channel North Subcatchment Management Plan and then the final plan with its 2060 vision, goals, 2023 goals and actions.

On Tuesday 5 November, 2013, Marrickville Council adopted the Eastern Channel North (EC North) Subcatchment Management Plan following public exhibition of the draft Plan. People who live or work in the area (view map) were invited have their say. Feedback was used in the final Plan.

Next

Marrickville Council will meet with the EC North Subcatchment working Group in early 2014 about the EC North Action Plan.

    Good news for the people of Eastern Channel North Subcatchment!

    On 5 November, 2013, Marrickville Council adopted the final Eastern Channel North Subcatchment Management Plan.

    The Eastern Channel North Subcatchment (EC North) covers parts of Stanmore, Enmore, Petersham and Marrickville.

    Council and the EC North community have worked collaboratively since February 2013 to develop the Management Plan for the subcatchment as part of the Waterevolution Subcatchment Planning program.

    People living and working in EC North are invited to send expressions of interest to join the subcatchment working group to help deliver the action plan.
