The action was completed through DEECA’s Secure Allocations, Future Entitlements project. The groundwater catchments that were introduced after the project reflected connected groundwater resources and flow systems.
All groundwater resources are within a groundwater catchment, allowing for amalgamation of management areas (for example, West Wimmera GMA and South West Limestone GMA) and for management to be documented for all groundwater resources.
As knowledge improves, there will be further changes to management areas to reduce administration and costs and to support market development.
Action status (5-yearly assessment): Achieved and completed
