Delivering Water for Victoria

Since Water for Victoria was launched in August 2016, significant progress has been made in meeting the challenges of climate change and population growth and taking action to ensure our water system is modern and efficient, future-focused and affordable.

Of the 69 actions under the plan, 57 actions are already complete and work is well underway on the remaining 12 actions.

The actions range from flagship waterway projects, protecting and restoring waterway health, supporting farmers’ resilience with new infrastructure and skills and partnering with Traditional Owners to better include Aboriginal water interests into water planning and management.

We are proud to be delivering Water for Victoria actions in collaboration with water corporations, catchment management authorities, the Victorian Environmental Water Holder, Traditional Owner groups, local government and community partners.

Our approach focuses on strengthening local relationships and putting the community at the centre of decision-making and the delivery of priority water projects for Victoria’s cities, towns and regions.

A strong system of planning, governance and reporting is in place to make sure that the actions under Water for Victoria sustain and secure our water supply for now and into the future.
