Melbourne Water is a statutory authority owned by the Victorian Government. It is our role to manage and protect Melbourne’s major water resources on behalf of the community.  It is an important role – one we take very seriously. Our ‘enhancing life and liveability’ strategic vision and rigorous research and water data informs our services, guaranteeing the supply of affordable, high-quality water, reliable sewerage, healthy waterways, integrated drainage and flood management.

Key Duty:

Review the potential for Melbourne Water’s land to support sustainable agriculture for city’s supply:

This is predicated on the fact that the food bowl of Melbourne is declining and yet supplies the majority of the city’s food – see https://theconversation.com/the-key-to-future-food-supply-is-sitting-on-our-cities-doorsteps-69146.  Melbourne Water holds ~33,000 hectares of land across the region and may be in a position to support agriculture in addition to its holdings at Werribee.

Students must have skills in environmental assessment and an understanding of sustainable agriculture and urban resilience. Statistical skills are desirable.
