Goulburn-Murray Water has established the Strathbogie Groundwater Management Area (GMA). The Strathbogie GMA extends from the Strathbogie Ranges to north of Violet Town and east of Nagambie and includes the upper and middle Sevens Creeks, Hughes Creek and Honeysuckle Creek Catchments.
Proposed Management Plan
The draft plan was developed in consultation with local groundwater users, the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority and the Department of Environment & Primary Industries.
The draft 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.
