Fwd: February 2022 birdwatching access renewal (WTP, Victoria)

I received the 

Western Treatment Plant access permit renewal email below a few days ago. Not sure if everyone's permit expires the same day. Of note is the fact that they're no longer splitting it into Special and General access areas. All keys are eventually going to open the gates in both areas.

Good Afternoon,


We are in the process of merging the Special and General access area’s into the
ONE birdwatching route. As a birdwatching area access holder and in preparedness of the merging of both areas you are required to complete our new online induction. We have included the induction as part of the online renewal process.


Please be advised that you are receiving this renewal notice as your birdwatching access expires in February 2022.
To renew your access please use the following link;




[Please complete the online safety module that will appear during your online renewal]


It is important that you keep
up to date with current birdwatching information at Melbourne Water, including urgent and emergency messages, therefore
it is a requirement that you sign up to our information portal YOURSAY



Please note:


Your new two year renewal period will begin from your current permit expiry date in February 2022 plus an additional six months due to the past covid-19 closures.


We no longer issue permit cards. You will receive an email with a copy of your renewal and receipt for your records.


is no need to purchase a special access key as both the special and general access keys will be able to open all locks on site once we merge both areas. You will be notified via email once both routes have been merged.


Your co-operation with implementing the improvements to the
birdwatching access at the Western Treatment Plant is much appreciated.  If you have any enquiries regarding this email please let me know.

Many thanks,
