Land and On Water Management Plans

Land and On Water Management Plans (L&OWMP) have been developed for many of our lakes, dams and reservoirs.

L&OWMPs are facilitated by GMW and are developed and implemented by the community. They are reliant on community ownership and the ability to attract funding.

The plans are implemented by L&OWMP Implementation Groups. Their activities including planning and sourcing external funding for initiatives that address a range of land and on-water issues such as:

  • increasing community awareness and involvement
  • community safety
  • recreation and tourism
  • maintaining healthy ecosystems
  • cultural heritage
  • the operational management of lakes, dams and reservoirs, including filling and releases, are outside the scope of the plan.

Implementation Groups

Each Plan has its own implementation group made up of twelve people including community representatives, local councils, recreation groups and other agencies.
