WERG staff are part of two newly announced ARC Linkage grants. Nick Bond (and our superstar Melbourne Water partner, Rhys Coleman, who is a partner investigator on two other new Linkage projects!) is working with Prof Barb Downes and others on a river restoration project. And Tim Fletcher, Chris Szota (and our Melbourne Water partner Peter Morison), in collaboration with our friends in the GIRG are investigating street trees as stormwater control measures. Congratulations to all!
