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 Monitoring Evaluation and Research Program (MER) builds on the work done as part of the Long Term Intervention Monitoring Program and is looking at the following areas:

  1. Stream metabolism
  2. Macroinvertebrates (water bugs)
  3. Vegetation
  4. Fish
  5. Physical habitat

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.
