Sustainable water strategies (SWSs) are one of the key elements for planning Victoria’s water resources well into the future. They identify threats to the supply and quality of the state's water resources and find ways to increase the volume of water for the environment.
SWSs work closely with Traditional Owners groups, water corporations, catchment management authorities, entitlement holders, environmental groups and the community to identify options to solve water issues based on acceptable trade-offs.
The SWS team are continuing to do the background work to get the necessary committee and independent panel in place to provide oversight and guidance on the development of the Central and Gippsland Region Sustainable Water Strategy (CGRSWS).
We will provide you with regular updates on the progress of the CGRSWS as more information becomes available. Please go to our website for further information and subscribe to the SWS newsletter.
