The delivery of environmental water to these systems will be made in line with the Seasonal Watering Plan 2011-12, and will help to maintain important environmental values.

The seasonal watering statements formally authorise the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority (Latrobe, Thomson and Macalister), Melbourne Water (Yarra, Tarago and Werribee), Corangamite Catchment Management Authority (Moorabool), Wimmera Catchment Management Authority (Wimmera), Glenelg-Hopkins Catchment Management Authority (Glenelg) and North Central Catchment Management Authority (Loddon) to order and deliver environmental water from the Water Holdings on behalf of the VEWH.

From 1 July, the entitlements relevant to these systems were transferred from the Minister for Environment and Climate Change to the VEWH, as the new independent body for holding and managing Victoria's environmental water entitlements.

Environmental water releases will not be made where there is a likelihood of flooding private land or property.
