Waterways

We oversee river health works through contractors, partner agencies and organisations.

The Water Act 1989 establishes the Authority as the caretaker of river health for the rivers of East Gippsland. This involves planning on-ground works designed to maintain and improve the health of rivers, and co-ordinating their delivery and completion in partnership with contractors, other agencies and community groups.

These river health works are guided by the East Gippsland Waterways Strategy with specific goals outlined in the Corporate Plan.

Progress towards the achievement of these goals is reported in the Authority’s Annual Reports.

Examples of recent river health works can be found on the Recent Projects pages for each of the major rivers in the region.
