News & Announcements

The Annual Newsletter 2016/17 is now available.


GMW plans to establish the Broken Groundwater Management Area (GMA) upstream of Lake Nilahcootie. The Broken GMA extends from the Victorian Alps to just south of the Murray River. It includes the Broken River and Broken Creek catchments. Major rural centres within the boundary include Benalla, Dookie and Tungamah.

Local Management Plan

The Broken Groundwater Management Area Local Management Plan was developed by Goulburn-Murray Water in consultation with the Goulburn Broken Water Services Committee made up of surface water and groundwater customers and representatives from key stakeholder agencies.

The Plan aims to provide the local community, and in particular licensed groundwater users, with information about the groundwater system and rules describing how the resource is managed.



For further information or to obtain technical material relied upon for management arrangements, please contact the Groundwater and Streams section at GMW on 1800 013 357.
