Long-Term Watering Plans

Long-term watering plans are environmental water planning documents that describe the ecological objectives and targets for priority water-dependent assets (rivers and wetlands) in a given region, and the corresponding environmental watering requirements for these objectives. They are prepared by DELWP in accordance with obligations under the Basin Plan. There are three long-term watering plans, one for each surface water resource plan area in Victoria: Northern Victoria, Victorian Murray and Wimmera-Mallee. A long-term watering plan is valid for up to five years. In accordance with Basin Plan, it is to be reviewed and updated:

  • when the relevant water resource plans are accredited, or
  • by 2020 (five years after preparation of the current long-term watering plan).
