Water Management

Water supply planning is essential in rural areas and requires collaboration, involvement and participation from all stakeholders, including farmland communities, local government authorities (LGAs) and State Government agencies as part of an integrated approach to sustainable water supply for the future.

The Shire of Victoria Plains Strategic Community Water Supply (SCWS) Plan has been published and can be found on the Department website here.

This plan provides information for the shire and farmers on the location of strategic community water supplies (SCWS) and how to access non-potable water for emergency stock watering, firefighting and other local government purposes, including what facilities are available at each site.
