  1 Environmental water in the Glenelg and Wimmera systems held by the VEWH is shared between the Wimmera and Glenelg river systems. Additionally, entitlement held by the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder may become available in the Wimmera system. A prioritisation process will be undertaken with the Wimmera and Glenelg Hopkins catchment management authorities to share available resources during 2020–21.
2 Potential watering actions are not listed in priority order.
3 Environmental water requirements for tier 2 actions are additional to tier 1 requirements.
