A new entitlement was established in April 2018, which will enable water for the environment to be used in the upper Barwon River for the first time in 2018–19. The entitlement provides 1,000 ML per year on average from the West Barwon Reservoir. Given the small amount of available environmental water, deliveries will target the reach between the West Barwon Reservoir and Birregurra Creek confluence, as this is where it can have the most benefit.

Grey river reaches have been included for context. The coloured extent of the upper Barwon River (including the East and West branches) is provided as a preliminary indication of where water may be able to be delivered if the entitlement is granted.
