Green light for Port Phillip dredging plan - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) (http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2007/10/31/2077390.htm)

They are going to dredge the bay soon by the looks of it.
I have only started to dive this year and there were reports the damage could take up to 30 years to fix. :(

I hope it isnt true as i havent seen half of what i want to see in the bay yet.

The price we pay for progress!!!??? It looks like it still needs to be approved by a few more people, maybe one of them will come to their senses and block it.

Can you get a petition going through the LDS's to stop the dredging?

This is terrible news! :smiley21:

I've been wanting to dive there for a while now, here's hoping they don't wreck it :smiley11:

Hey, i'm moving to melbourne later this year, and there aint no water cold or far enough to keep me from diving. What happened with all the dredging, if it happened at all?

Also dive site recommendations?

Cheers
