Discuss the proposed changes to Victoria's water laws

Wednesday 22 January, 2014
The Victorian Government has released the Water Bill Exposure Draft to give Victorians the opportunity to provide feedback on proposed changes to the state’s water laws. The Water Bill Exposure Draft proposes to bring the Water Act 1989 and Water Industry Act 1994 into a single, streamlined Water Act that reflects contemporary practice in water management and government policy.

Invitation

The Goulburn Broken CMA acknowledges and respects First Nations people and the deep connection they have with their land and waters.


We acknowledge the Yorta Yorta and Taungurung people and their ancestors/forbears as Traditional Owners of the land and waters in the Goulburn Broken Catchment (and beyond). We value our ongoing partnerships with Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation and Taungurung Land and Waters Council for the health of Country and its people.


We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge and recognise the primacy of Traditional Owners obligations, rights and responsibilities to use and care for their traditional lands and waters.
