The Victorian Government has reviewed two State Environment Protection Policies (SEPPs) - Waters of Victoria, and Groundwaters of Victoria - to ensure Victoria has clear and relevant water quality standards and obligations to protect and improve the health of our water environments.
As part of the SEPP (Waters) review, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) have developed a new draft SEPP (Waters), a policy impact assessment and an implementation plan.
Consultation on the draft SEPP (Waters), draft policy impact assessment and draft implementation plan is open until 19 June 2018.
