Jack believes not enough action has occurred. “When Stan Hawkins was Mayor of Mordialloc the water in the creek stopped. It was bone dry. A petition to save the creek, to dredge it, was organised and 8000 people went through the factory to sign it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDHtJFtwJfw    Video -Jack Pompei and his boats. Early in 2010 Leon Pompei contacted Jack’s mate Ted Baillieu about Mordialloc Creek. Ted has promised 6 million to fix it.

Jack has himself put in walls on the creek bank where he moors his boats and worked with the Public Works Department to create walls on the opposite bank. Through his efforts the mouth of the creek was changed to a little south of the pier, part of the pier was enclosed to stop water rushing through and thereby help restore the beach, and the creek was widened in some parts. Dredging has been undertaken at various time with the silt being deposited at different sites including the Parkdale Primary School, the Mordialloc and Cheltenham Community Hospital, St Brigid’s, and what was once the Warren Road tip. Jack Pompei gets Mordialloc Boat owners set up.
