Environmental water tour

Jul 24, 2017Education, Rivers

On a sunny winter’s day, the Corangamite CMA hosted the Victorian Environmental Water Holder (VEWH) for an environmental water based tour of the region. The tour was a great opportunity for each organisation to catch-up and discuss future management of environmental water within the Corangamite region as well as discuss business needs.

The day included a tour of the West Barwon Reservoir and Moorabool River with discussions focusing on their future partnership in managing a new environmental water entitlement for the Upper Barwon River that will be held at West Barwon Reservoir in Forest.
