Groundwater licence holders in the Lower Campaspe Valley Water Supply Protection Area have a 100 per cent allocation for the 2017-18 season.

Groundwater licence holders in the Lower Campaspe Valley Water Supply Protection Area have a 100 per cent allocation for the 2017-18 season.

Goulburn-Murray Water senior hydrogeologist Brendan Cossens said this was good news for more than 130 licensed groundwater customers in the area, meaning they can use up to 100 per cent of their entitlement.

‘‘Groundwater levels in the Lower Campaspe Valley recovered strongly last winter and spring which put the resource in a good position. This provides certainty to customers relying on the allocation,’’ Mr Cossens said.

The allocations have been determined in accordance with the Lower Campaspe Valley Water Supply Protection Area Groundwater Management Plan.
