About the watering

Great Cormorant and Yellow-billed Spoonbill @ Laanecoorie

The purpose of this watering action was to improve and maintain the ecological health and resilience of the Loddon River system. A total of 2,774.5 ML of Commonwealth environmental water contributed towards in-stream baseflows and freshes between September and November 2013 within the Loddon River in support of riparian vegetation condition, native fish reproduction and condition, hydrological connectivity and water quality.

The watering action was managed in partnership with the Victorian Environmental Water Holder, Goulburn-Murray Water and the North Central Catchment Management Authority.
