Groundwater management

The Eildon Groundwater Management Area Local Management Plan was developed by Goulburn-Murray Water in consultation with the Goulburn Broken Water Services Committee made up of surface water and groundwater customers and representatives from 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.
