Seasonal watering statements can be made at any time during the year and are generally linked to waterway managers and specific systems. Depending on the nature of the system and the entitlement being used, there may be one or multiple statements for a system throughout the year.

In addition to communicating decisions on environmental watering activities, the seasonal watering statements also authorise a catchment management authority or Melbourne Water to order and deliver water in the water holdings on behalf of the VEWH.

If you want a statement from previous financial years call us on (03) 9637 8951 or email general.enquiries@vewh.vic.gov.au
