As many people are aware this State Government water strategy is a pivotal document which will guide any plans to help the region's distressed rivers - including the Moorabool. PALM understands that the Draft is now before the Minister for Water, Richard Wynn.


Like PALM with the Moorabool River, groups across the region are witnessing the deterioration in the river systems and wetlands in their areas. They are all seeking to have the plight of their waterways fully acknowledged and to have constructive and input into decisions designed to secure better futures for those waterways.


PALM has joined them in calling on the Department of Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and Minister Richard Wynn to vastly improve community engagement and involvement in the SWS process.
