Local engagement

Local information and experience is critical to being able to effectively manage and deliver Commonwealth environmental water. We are very grateful for the expertise, advice, feedback and support provided by our delivery partners, environmental water holders, members of the scientific community, regional advisory groups who invite us to participate in their processes, and the many landowners who work with us to plan, manage and monitor the use of environmental water in the Basin.

Local Engagement Officers

The Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder has six local engagement officers working alongside State and local land and water management officers, providing outreach to local communities throughout the Basin. Their locations and contact details are provided below.

Your suggestions for environmental watering
