Thoughts gathered on future of Kow Swamp

Thoughts gathered on future of Kow Swamp
Thursday 14 August, 2014 - Goulburn Murray Water

More than 30 people attended a public meeting in Leitchville to discuss the future management of Kow Swamp.

 Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) convened the meeting to gain feedback to be used when developing the Kow Swamp Land and On-Water Management Plan.

GMW General Manager of Catchment Services Graeme Hannan said the meeting was productive with many thoughts about the issues facing Kow Swamp raised and possible solutions put forward.

"The attendees were assured that Kow Swamp will be continuing its vital role as part of the Torrumbarry Irrigation District and Mid-Murray storages," Mr Hannan said.

Issued raised included - but were not limited to - management, cultural heritage, bird habitat, boating, fishing and recreational activities.

Mr Hannan said these issues would be considered in developing the Kow Swamp Land and On-Water Management Plan.

 "The plan being developed is aimed at enhancing the values at Kow Swamp into the future, not just for water storage but also for improving water quality, valuing cultural heritage and increasing environmental and recreation values," he said.

 "During the coming six weeks a draft plan will be developed that identifies the issues raised by the community and other stakeholders and proposes actions for improvement.

"The community and other stakeholders will be invited to make comment on the draft plan to ensure that the issues are accurately represented and the actions for improvement are supported."
