The vast majority of the Limestone Coast’s water comes from underground – the confined and unconfined aquifers. We also get water from rainfall and a small amount from creeks that flow from south west Victoria. Some townships in the upper Limestone Coast are serviced by the pipeline from the River Murray.
There are many competing water users in the region and a finite amount of water to share.
The purpose of this survey is to help us understand the community’s views on water use – what you see as important for the ongoing sustainability and prosperity of our region.
Some of the questions are specifically for people with water licences for irrigation or industrial purposes, but most are designed to explore what everyone thinks about the way water is perceived and valued in this region.
This survey is a key part of the water allocation planning process and will inform how we proceed with policy and consultation in water planning, including the upcoming reviews of the Lower Limestone Coast and Tintinara-Coonalpyn water allocation plans.
