North East Catchment Management Authority is undertaking a Catchment Action Plan (CAP) for the upper Mitta Mitta River catchment. The CAP will inform natural resource management investment in the upper Mitta Mitta region upstream of Dartmouth Dam. Consultants, Water Technology, are assisting with this project which is part of the Victorian Government’s Our Catchments, Our Communities program in North East Victoria.
Input from stakeholders and the local community is sought to ensure that realistic, appropriate management priorities are developed.
The project will:
- Identify key environmental, social, cultural and economic values; and to identify threats to these values within the catchment
- Develop a prioritised series of environmental improvement actions to benefit the Upper Mitta Mitta catchment.
There are several ways you can participate in the project.
