Environmental benefits

3One third of Stage 1 water savings will be for the environment, some of which will be stored in Lake Eildon. This water will be released into stressed rivers and streams when required. This means that 75GL of saved water losses can be used at a time when it is most needed and provides maximum benefit for the environment.

The environment's share of water savings will be over and above The Living Murray and Snowy commitments and will primarily target the use of environmental water for priority Victorian wetlands and tributaries. This will also have flow-on benefits when the water enters the River Murray, which can then be reused to meet the needs of the Murray and its floodplains and wetlands, including Kerang Lakes, Barmah Forest, Gunbower Forest, Hattah Lakes, Lindsay-Wallpolla Island and various other sites along the River Murray.
