Status

31 March 2014: This action is completed.

About the watering

The purpose of this watering action is to improve and maintain the ecological health and resilience of the Loddon River system. Commonwealth environmental water will contribute towards in-stream baseflows and freshes between July 2013 and June 2014 within the Loddon River in support of riparian vegetation condition, native fish reproduction and condition, hydrological connectivity and water quality.

This watering action will use up to 3,302 ML of Commonwealth environmental water, subject to water availability within the Loddon catchment. It is being managed in partnership with the Victorian Environmental Water Holder, Goulburn-Murray Water and the North Central Catchment Management Authority.
