Productive meeting held with houseboat owners
Wednesday 28 January, 2015

Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) will continue to provide updates to Lake Eildon houseboat owners about the Jerusalem Creek barge, the outcome of meetings with grey water unit suppliers and installers and other issues related to meeting requirements for grey water systems on vessels.

 These topics were raised by house boat owners who attended one of the four information session held at Lake Eildon facilitated by GMW Recreation & Land Management Officer Jeff Harrison last month (January).

 Mr Harrison thanked the 200-plus houseboat owners who attended the sessions saying their input on issues related to grey water system requirements under the to the  Victorian Government’s Water (Lake Eildon Recreation Area) Houseboat Regulations 2013 and other houseboat operations was invaluable.

 Under the Regulations, a grey water treatment system is required for:
•    all new houseboats;
•    for houseboat licence transfers to be approved by GMW after July 1, 2015; and
•    all houseboats by July 1, 2020.

“We will now compile a question and answer sheet based on the feedback received, which will then be circulated to all boat owners, either by direct email or through the respective marina operators,” Mr Harrison said.

  As well as circulating the fact sheet, GMW will:
•    have discussions with existing boat owners who already have grey water treatment units fitted to confirm if units are operating effectively;
•    meet with grey water unit suppliers and installers to discuss any outstanding operating issues with existing units and the potential for current suppliers to be able to supply and fit units to all vessels July 1, 2020; and
•    follow up on operational issues associated with the Jerusalem Creek barge including, pump faults, lack of operating instruction signage and the need for GMW notify houseboat owners when the barge is unavailable due to the transfer barge being emptied.

 For more information about the regulations, visit the Lake Eildon houseboat page at or contact Jeff Harrison on
 or 1800 013 357. Sorry, only registered users can see this content. Please Login or Register.
