Maintenance and Rehabilitation

Lovely river system with rockery at the front - lots of greenery

City of Parramatta has developed Waterways Maintenance and Rehabilitation Masterplans (WMRM's) to coordinate upkeep and restoration programs for waterways in our local area. The WMRM's aim to maintain the ecological integrity of the systems while increasing access and recognising the need to manage flooding and heritage issues. You can download and read the full WMRM's below:
