HAVE YOUR SAY on Long Term Water Resources Strategy for Victoria! Closing 30 November!

DELWP is undertaking a study and consultation on Long Term Water Resources Assessment (LTWRA) for Southern Victoria and the draft Overview Report and other documents are available for consultation.

Consultation closes on 30th November and it is important to have your say as the report identifies that there has been a long term decline in water availability with detrimental impacts on Victoria's rivers and water systems. This decline in environmental water reinforces adverse impacts on biodiversity in rivers and streams and surrounding areas.

The LTWRA will lead to the development of sustainable water strategies for the Central Region (including Geelong and Melbourne) and Gippsland in the next 12 to 18 months.

You can have your say on these processes here - https://www.water.vic.gov.au/planning/long-term-assessments-and-strategies/ltwra
