Meeting water yield challenges in North East Victoria

A series of online seminars that begins on Tuesday 27 October proposes to explore climate, demographic and environmental pressures on the availability of, and access to water in North East Victoria. 


Kiewa Valley dairy farmers hit climate change 'sweet spot'

Kiewa Valley dairy farmers Belinda and Scott McKillop are working with North East CMA on a National Landcare Program project to see how farmers use climate projections to support their farm management.


Fishing fees to restore habitat at Katie Peters Reserve

A project to restore fish habitat and increase the fish population in the Mitta River has received $39,381.20 through the 2019-20 round of the Victorian Government’s Recreational Fishing Large Grants Program.
The funding will allow the North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) to install large rocks (rock seeding) and timber structures (known as LUNKERS) in the river at Katie Peters Reserve to provide fish habitat and improve opportunities for anglers.


Controlling feral animals vital for tiny possum’s recovery

Controlling populations of feral cats and foxes in the Victorian Alps is vital for the survival and recovery of the endangered Mountain Pygmy-possum (Burramys parvus).

These tiny animals, the only marsupial known to hibernate over winter in Australia, are only found above 1,400 metres altitude among the boulders of Victoria’s highest peaks.


Protecting the Basin’s natural water filter

The Alpine Peatlands are crucial for moderating and filtering water flowing from the Victorian snowfields into our waterways and the Murray Darling Basin.   

By maintaining hydrology of surrounding environments, healthy peatlands create a healthy water source for the southern Basin and the communities and industries that depend on this water.
