Groundwater management

The Mid Goulburn Groundwater Management Area Local Management Plan was developed by Goulburn-Murray Water in consultation with a Reference Group made up of groundwater customers and representatives from key stakeholder agencies. The Plan was approved on 13 November 2014.

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