Melbourne Water has been recognised for its commitment to safety, winning a prestigious award at the annual National Water Awards

Managing Director at Melbourne Water, Nerina Di Lorenzo said the organisation took home the Water Industry Safety Excellence Award at the Ozwater’23 Gala Dinner and Australian Water Awards for its Epsom Main Sewer Relining project.

“These awards showcase the wide range of innovative projects that Melbourne Water and our partners undertake to ensure we’re protecting our natural resources and servicing our community today, tomorrow and for generations to come,” Dr Di Lorenzo (pictured centre front) said.

“I’m immensely proud that our teams have been recognised for the important work that we do on a daily basis, whether this is across research, design or implementation of exciting new projects for the community of Greater Melbourne,” she said.

“I congratulate everyone who worked on the Epsom Main Sewer Relining project and look forward to our continued investment and innovation for the benefit of the environment and our communities.”

Dr Di Lorenzo said that in addition to the Safety Excellence Award, Melbourne Water also had two other projects nominated for awards, including the R&D Excellence Award for its Real Greenhouse Gas Emission Measurement and Reporting for Real Reductions as We Move Toward Net Zero initiative, and the Infrastructure Project Innovation Award for its Shakespeare Grove Main Drain Outlet Renewal work.
