Groundwater Management

The Broken GMA Local Management Plan (the Plan) was developed by Goulburn-Murray Water in consultation groundwater users and 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.
