Basin Plan environmental works projects

Messengers regulator

Consultation is underway into the development of environmental works projects at seven sites within the Victorian Mallee.

These projects aim to deliver environmental outcomes under the Murray-Darling Basin Plan using less water. Together, these projects have the potential to reduce the amount of water taken out of consumptive use to meet the environmental objectives set in the Basin Plan.

The proposed projects are in the following locations:
•     Lindsay Island
•     Wallpolla Island
•     Hattah Lakes
•     Belsar-Yungera
•     Burra Creek
•     Vinifera
•     Nyah

The proposed environmental works projects involve using engineering works such as regulators, pipes and pumps, to efficiently and effectively deliver water to wetlands and floodplains.

In June 2017, the Murray-Darling Basin Ministerial Council  endorsed all seven of the Mallee projects. Funding for implementation of the package of projects is still being finalised by the Commonwealth.

Please find below fact sheets containing detailed information on the environmental projects and the development process.
