Victorian Environmental Water Holding

Seasonal Watering Plan 2016-17

The seasonal watering plan is the major planning document developed by the VEWH. This sixth annual plan provides the blueprint for the Victorian environmental watering program setting the priorities for where, when, how and why environmental water will be used annually. It builds on the solid foundation established in the previous plans, while incorporating learning and experience from the VEWH's third year of operation.

As allocations are made to environmental water entitlements, and water is actually available for use, the VEWH releases seasonal watering statements to communicate its decisions throughout the year.

The seasonal watering plan and statements are informed by seasonal watering proposals developed by catchment management authorities and Melbourne Water in consultation with local communities and other partner agencies.
