Local Management Plan

GMW has developed a Local Management Plan for the West Goulburn GMA, in consultation with groundwater users and other key stakeholders. The Plan was approved and published on 28 July 2017.

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