Local Management Plan

The Strathbogie Groundwater Management Area Local Management Plan was developed by Goulburn-Murray Water in consultation with a Groundwater Reference Group made up of groundwater customers and representatives from key stakeholder agencies. The Plan was approved on 29 August 2013.

The Plan provides a clear framework for managing groundwater in the Strathbogie GMA and considers both the benefits of using groundwater and the needs of high value environmental assets.

The Plan provides guidance about where groundwater development may occur and puts in place arrangements to manage current and future groundwater use; such as trading rules and caps on new licence entitlement.
