Goulburn to Murray trade rule review

Have your say on possible changes to the Goulburn to Murray trade rule.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is proposing changes to operating rules and trade rules to ensure that water traded from the Goulburn to the Murray can be delivered without unacceptable impacts on the environment or the reliability of other entitlements.

Delivering water from the Goulburn inter-valley trade account to the Murray system caused significant environmental damage to the lower Goulburn River during the 2017-18 and 2018-19 irrigation seasons.
