About the region

The waterways in these systems provide drinking water to greater Melbourne, Ballarat and Geelong and support a range of activities including walking, cycling, fishing and camping, as well as areas of irrigated agriculture. Platypus and fish are two examples of animals that attract community interest in the health of the waterways.

Water for the environment is held in storage and delivered to support the plants and animals that live in and along the rivers. There are some links between systems in the region, and there are therefore opportunities to move water between systems through trade. Although moving water between systems is possible, most environmental water in these systems is prioritised to provide benefits in the river below where it is stored. While there is no dedicated environmental entitlement in the Maribyrnong system, water allocation has been purchased from licence holders in the system for environmental outcomes.

View the current seasonal watering plan for the rivers and wetlands that make up the Central region:


Seasonal Outlook 2020/21

Rainfall in 2019–20 was highly variable both within and between seasons across the central region’s systems. The Yarra catchment experienced above-average conditions with natural inflows achieving many planned watering actions including low flows and freshes. Lal Lal Reservoir in the Moorabool system filled in spring 2019, and Pykes Creek Reservoir and Melton Reservoir in the Werribee system both filled and spilled. In contrast, inflows to Rosslynne Reservoir were well-below average, which meant the VEWH was unable to purchase any water to support environmental flows in the Maribyrnong system.

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting above-average rainfall across the central region for the first three months of the 2020–21 water year, which could increase storage levels and produce some larger flow events that cannot be delivered through managed environmental flows. These conditions may allow the VEWH, Melbourne Water and Corangamite CMA to deliver watering actions that are only planned under average or wet scenarios and aim to improve rather than just maintain environmental values in the region’s waterways. This may include delivering flows over winter/spring of increased magnitude or duration, such as in the Moorabool system to provide a cue for fish (like the adult tupong) to migrate downstream to spawn.

If the central region experiences relatively dry conditions throughout 2020–21, water for the environment will mostly be used to deliver minimum low flows and freshes to maintain habitat and water quality and prevent significant decline in populations of aquatic plants and animals.

Traditional Owners in the central region

Traditional Owners in the central region have a deep connection to the region’s rivers, wetlands and floodplains.

The Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation, Eastern Maar Aboriginal Corporation, Wathaurung Aboriginal Corporation (trading as Wadawurrung) and Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation are the Registered Aboriginal Parties for the areas incorporating waterways covered by this section of the seasonal watering plan.

Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation is also a Registered Aboriginal Party within the geographic area, but the Gunaikurnai waterways managed with water for the environment are covered under the Gippsland region section of the seasonal watering plan.
