Full groundwater allocation in Lower Campaspe Valley Water Supply Protection Area

Tuesday 10 July, 2018

Groundwater licence holders in the Lower Campaspe Valley Water Supply Protection Area have a 100 per cent allocation for the 2018/19 season.

Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) General Manager Customer Operations Scott Barber said this was good news for more than 130 Lower Campaspe Valley licensed groundwater users that rely on the resource.  Our customers are able to use up to 100 per cent of their entitlement.

“Seasonal groundwater recovery levels in the Lower Campaspe Valley were similar to previous years, which have kept the resource in a reasonable condition. This provides certainty to customers relying on allocations for the 2018/19 irrigation season,” Mr Barber said.

The Lower Campaspe Valley Water Supply Protection Area extends from Lake Eppalock in the south to the River Murray in the north and incorporates the towns of Axedale, Goornong, Elmore, Lockington, Rochester and Echuca.

The allocations have been determined in accordance with the Lower Campaspe Valley Water Supply Protection Area Groundwater Management Plan.
