Water for the environment

Environmental water entitlements are held by the Victorian Environmental Water Holder (VEWH), the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder (CEWH) and the Murray-Darling Basin Authority (MDBA).

Goulburn River - a tale of environment flows in Victoria's longest river

Follow Flo (our intrepid water droplet) on a journey down the Goulburn River as she explains how water for the environment is used to improve the health of Victoria’s longest waterway.

Monitoring

The Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder has established a monitoring project to evaluate the ecological outcomes of environmental water use in the lower Goulburn River (between the Goulburn Weir near Murchison and the Murray River).

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.
