The Goulburn Broken catchment has been significantly impacted by the Spring 2022 flood events. See below for current Goulburn Broken CMA flood recovery information.
The Goulburn Broken CMA has assessed the majority of impacts on flood-affected waterways that occurred in October and November 2022.
Available funding was used to undertake and support priority works needed to protect waterways and public assets, such as:
- Waterways or riparian fence repair;
- Erosion and sediment management;
- Revegetation and weed control;
- Debris clearing in waterways.
No further Victorian Government flood recovery funding was allocated to Catchment Management Authorities in the 2023-24 Victorian Budget.
Recovery of the catchment’s waterways in the aftermath of flooding is ongoing.
Works on Waterways Permit
Individuals who wish to undertake works to address flood-related damage to private property or assets on a waterway must apply for, and be issued with, a Works on Waterways Permit. Goulburn Broken CMA encourages landholders to continue to work with us to gain approvals to undertake flood recovery works.
