We are delighted to welcome you to our new website, designed to give you the best possible online experience through quicker access to the information you are looking for.

What's new?

Our new water website is easier to navigate and far more mobile-friendly. Our information is clearer and accessible in many ways.

You will notice some changes if you regularly visit our website.

The website address www.water.vic.gov.au remains the same. However, you will see that the menus have changed – this is based on user feedback and research.

We have created redirects for the 50 top pages on the site. If you have previously visited one of these pages, your browser will redirect you to the new location. For pages outside the top 50, these will no longer work, so we encourage you to become familiar with the new website.
