The Environment, Natural Resources and Environment Committee is holding an inquiry into the management, governance and use of environmental water.
This is your chance to have a further say about the use of 'water for the environment' in Victoria.
The committee wants to hear your feedback about the benefits and challenges of environmental water use, including your stories about:
- the role of environmental water in preventing or causing 'blackwater' events
- the use of water management tools such as carryover and their impact on the availability of water for irrigators
- any barriers to more efficient use of environmental water and how those should be addressed
- the fees and charges applied and whether they differ from those imposed on other water users
The committee is encouraging written submissions from community members on any of these points by 25 August. Submissions can be a letter, paper or report.
For more details, and information on how to submit, visit the website of the Parliament of Victoria.
