Managing Victoria's Water Resources - How Much Water?

DELWP

18/09/2019

The Victorian Government has prepared accessible and easy to use resources to help Victorians understand how the government manages our water resources.

It is important for Victorians to understand this complexity in a time when climate change and population growth have led to a decline in Victoria’s water storage levels.

The How Much Water? site offers a pictorial online resource which gives excellent overview information on

  • how water management is allocated across a range of authorities
  • how water entitlements are managed
  • lessons learnt from the millennium drought
  • the amount of water available for consumptive and environmental purposes
  • responsibilities for monitoring and reporting

The site also allows a user to delve deeper into figures around water storages, water use and the flows required to maintain environmental balance.

Further information is also available through the DELWP Water Catchments site.
