About the region

The Macalister and Thomson rivers are tributaries of the Latrobe River. The Macalister flows into the Thomson near Sale. The Thomson joins the Latrobe shortly downstream, where it flows past the Latrobe wetlands (Sale Common, Heart Morass and Dowd Morass) before entering Lake Wellington. These rivers and wetlands have a range of environmental values and support irrigated agriculture, tourism and industry.

The Snowy River flows south from the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales and into Victoria and Bass Strait. Storages in the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme are connected to the Murray and Murrumbidgee systems via a network of tunnels, pipelines and aqueducts through which water from the Snowy is transferred to supply irrigated agriculture in the Murray–Darling Basin.

Seasonal Outlook 2020/21

Water for the environment for the Latrobe, Thomson and Macalister systems is held in Blue Rock Reservoir, Thomson Reservoir and Lake Glenmaggie respectively.

Environmental entitlements in these systems have unique characteristics that influence planning for environmental flows. The Thomson system receives a share of the daily inflows to the Thomson Reservoir and a secure annual allocation which is available on 1 July each year. In the Latrobe and Macalister systems, the availability of water for the environment depends on system inflows to Blue Rock Reservoir and Lake Glenmaggie respectively. Winter and spring are the peak inflow periods for all systems, so annual allocations are usually well-known before the start of summer. With several planned watering actions being met with natural flows in 2019–20 and the watering year ending with good inflows to storages, high carryover is likely in all systems and waterway managers will start 2020–21 with good water availability to deliver potential watering actions throughout the year.

During December 2019 and January 2020, severe bushfires burnt vast areas of east Gippsland. Heavy rainfall in these areas may wash ash and sediment into waterways including the Snowy River, which could have adverse effects on water quality and environmental values. Flushing flows planned for the Snowy River in winter and spring 2020 may help to mitigate some water quality impacts. West Gippsland was largely untouched by the recent bushfires, and waterways in that area may be essential for sustaining and restoring regional populations of aquatic animals. Environmental flows delivered to the Latrobe, Thomson and Macalister systems in 2020–21 aim to grow local populations of native fish, platypus and waterbirds, and some of these animals may disperse and contribute to the recovery of populations in nearby fire-affected areas in future years.

Most of the Gippsland region experienced below-average rainfall in 2017–18 and 2018–19, but climatic conditions varied considerably across the region in 2019–20. East Gippsland generally remained dry, although autumn rainfall was closer to the long-term average. West Gippsland had above-average rainfall in late winter 2019, near-average rainfall in spring 2019 and above-average rainfall in summer and autumn 2020. The higher rainfall and associated increase in natural streamflow in west Gippsland met many of the priority environmental watering actions for the Latrobe, Thomson and Macalister systems during 2019–20.

The Bureau of Meteorology climate outlook indicates wet conditions may continue into 2020–21, with winter rainfall predicted to be close to or slightly above the long-term average. Significant winter rain will deliver increased inflows to storages in west Gippsland that hold Victorian environmental water entitlements, and it may lead to high flow or overbank flows in some systems. Natural flows may meet many of the environmental flow requirements for the Latrobe, Thomson and Macalister systems early in 2020–21, and there may be opportunities to release environmental water — on top of natural freshes or as larger flows recede — to enhance environmental outcomes. For example, the duration of a fresh after a storage spill from Lake Glenmaggie could be extended to meet objectives for fringing vegetation

and reduce the risk of bank slumping and flush the Latrobe River estuary to export excess salt from the upper water column. If conditions are drier through spring and summer 2020 and into autumn 2021, environmental water will be used to protect high-value environmental assets (such as by providing critical flows for threatened migratory fish, particularly with bushfire potentially affecting waterway habitat in east Gippsland), and set aside sufficient reserves to deliver early-season watering priorities in 2021–22.

Allocations across the west Gippsland systems are largely influenced by storage inflows during winter and spring, and so by late spring waterway managers can determine which potential watering actions they will likely be able to deliver for the rest of the 2020–21 water year. Where critical demands cannot be met by existing allocations, the VEWH and its program partners may investigate alternative supply options (such as transfers or trades). The VEWH also works with storage managers to identify opportunities to adjust the pattern of consumptive water deliveries to support environmental watering outcomes while still meeting the needs of consumptive water users.

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment plans and manages environmental flows in the Snowy system in consultation with Victorian and Australian governments and relevant stakeholder groups. The water year for the Snowy system starts in May and finishes in April the following year, which differs from how water is managed in the other Gippsland systems. The total volume for release and daily release targets for the Snowy River from May 2020 to April 2021 were endorsed by the Snowy Advisory Committee in February 2020, and daily releases will not vary unless flows increase the risk of flooding downstream or operational constraints prevent delivery.

Traditional Owners in the Gippsland region

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

The Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC), on behalf of the Gunaikurnai people, hold Native Title and is a Registered Aboriginal Party over an area that extends from near Warragul, east to the Snowy River and north to the Great Dividing Range. This area includes the Latrobe, Thomson, Macalister and Snowy rivers and the lower Latrobe wetlands covered by this section of the seasonal watering plan.

The State of Victoria has also entered into a Recognition and Settlement Agreement with the Gunaikurnai people. The Recognition and Settlement Agreement, executed under the Traditional Owner Settlement Act 2010, affords Gunaikurnai people rights relating to the use of public land within their agreement area.

Other Registered Aboriginal Parties in this geographic area are the Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation, but their boundaries do not extend to the waterways managed with water for the environment in the Gippsland region.

Stories

Stories of success and reflections on past environmental watering activities and results
  • Adult Australian grayling from Thomson River, by Arthur Rylah Institute

    Case study: Giving threatened fish a brighter future

    Environmental watering over the last five years has initiated migration of the threatened Australian grayling to spawn in the lower Thomson River.

  • Lynton Hill on a tour of the Snowy River

    Better flows for the Snowy

    Watering the Snowy River aims to rehabilitate the river by moving sediment, establishing plants and boosting carbon.

  • Macalister River at Lanigans Bridge during low flows in winter, by Minna Tom

    Flushing waterholes in Macalister River

    Environmental watering in the Macalister River in 2015–16 provided habitat for plants and animals, including platypus.

  • Water testing, by David Stork, West Gippsland CMA

    First recorded Australian grayling breeding in Latrobe

    Watering in the Latrobe River in 2015–16 prompted first recorded breeding of Australian grayling.

  • Water sampling

    Testing breeding conditions for grayling

    Breeding conditions for the iconic Australian grayling in the Thomson River were tested in 2015–16.

  • Black Bream

    Rush control

    While the Latrobe River benefited from the delivery of autumn freshes - watering that exceeds the base flow, lasting for one or several days - in 2014–15, the lower Latrobe wetlands continued an all-important drying regime.

  • Helping Bass

    During 2014–15, 155,308 ML of water was delivered to Gippsland’s Snowy River, while an important project continued to investigate the relationship between environmental water and Australian bass populations.

  • Macalister River downstream glenmaggie

    Targeting migratory fish

    Work on a new environmental water management plan for the Macalister River began in 2014–15 as environmental water continued to target native migratory fish species, including the iconic and threatened Australian grayling.

  • Grayling

    Watering vulnerable grayling

    The Australian grayling – one of Victoria’s threatened fish species – continued to prosper in Gippsland’s Thomson River as a direct response to environmental watering in 2014–15.
