What we do

Working from the mountains to the sea…

We are responsible for over 40,000km of designated waterways across our region. All of these waterways flow to the Victorian coast, discharging through the Gippsland Lakes, or directly into Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean.

Protecting waterways
Delivering Water for the Environment
Managing estuaries
