Key Partners

Some of Council’s key water management partners include:

  • Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (GBCMA) – works to ensure that land and water resources across the Goulburn Broken Catchment are protected and enhanced as well as improving the region’s social wellbeing, environmental quality and productive capacity in a sustainable manner. The GBCMA produces Regional Catchment Strategies, Biodiversity Strategies and Waterway Health strategies to guide natural resource management in the Goulburn Broken Catchment.
  • Goulburn-Murray Water (G-MW) – manages water storage, delivery and drainage systems involving 70% of Victoria’s stored water. G-MW services a region of 68,000 square kilometres, bordered by the Great Dividing Range to the south, the River Murray to the north and stretching from Corryong in the east to Nyah in the west. G-MW manages non-potable (not treated to meet safe human drinking standards) water.
  • Goulburn Valley Water (GVW) – provides urban potable (treated to meet safe human drinking standards) water and wastewater services to a population of over 129,000, servicing 58,823 properties in 54 towns, spanning from the outskirts of Melbourne in the south, to the Murray River in the north. Bulk water supply is principally from the Goulburn/Broken, Murray, Steavenson, Rubicon and Delatite River systems and a number of smaller local streams such as Sunday Creek and Seven Creeks.
  • Goulburn Broken Waterwatch Program – Waterwatch is a national community water quality monitoring program that has been operating since 1993. The program brings together school and community groups, landowners, Councils and Water Authorities to test the quality of their local stream or water source so that practical actions can be taken to maintain and improve water quality.
  • Parks Victoria (PV) – manages Victoria’s park network to protect and enhance park values to ensure parks are healthy and resilient for current and future generations.
