Kow Swamp future management plan one step closer
Thursday 23 October, 2014

 A plan to guide how Goulburn Murray Water (GMW) and other agencies will manage activities on and around Kow Swamp is one step closer.

GMW Manager Dams Martina Cusack said the comment period on the draft Kow Swamp Land and On-Water Management Plan closed October 17.

"We've been receiving feedback on the draft plan from the community and agencies over the past few months," Ms Cusack said.

"This input and the views and ideas shared at the community meeting held at Leitchville on October 8 with representatives from the local community, progress associations, landcare, landholders, service organisations, Field and Game Australia, as well as a local councillor and GMW, have proved invaluable."

Ms Cusack  said meeting participants endorsed the proposed vision for Kow Swamp as "An actively managed storage servicing customer water supply demands and the cultural heritage, ecological and recreation needs of stakeholders".

"The group felt there should be increased representation of community on the proposed implementation committee, identified the need for a section on birdlife to be included as a critical value of Kow Swamp and supported proposed actions to address issues associated with cultural heritage, land management, water quality, healthy ecosystems and recreation and tourism."

Ms Cusack said the project reference group would update the draft plan by October 29. It will then available on the GMW website for review before it is endorsed by the GMW Board.

"Similar plans have been developed for other GMW water storages and have been incredibly useful in helping prioritise activities, seek funding, keep agencies accountable and provide transparency around processes," she said.
