How is Environmental Water Managed?

Flooded Kinnairds WetlandEach year the VEWH prepares a seasonal watering plan that prioritises the watering activities of the entire State in an integrated way. This plan sets the scope for environmental watering activities that could occur under a range of climatic scenarios (from extremely dry to wet seasons).

The seasonal watering plan considers the most appropriate use of environmental water entitlements held by the VEWH, as well as other environmental water entitlements available for use in Victoria, such as The Living Murray entitlements and those held by the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder.
