Joe Banks from the DEPI Water Group talks through the key changes, how you can use the new carry-over calculator to improve your understanding, and where you can find more information.
There are six podcasts including:
1) Summary of carry-over changes;
2) The new carry-over calculator;
3) The new Murray spill rule;
4) The new carry-over cap;
5) Other changes;
6) System reserve policy.
Further video podcasts in the series are planned to be released in the near future demonstrating how local dairy farmers are using carry-over water in their farm businesses. The videos can be reviewed on the Victorian Water Register website.
These videos are provided with support and funding from the Victorian Government through Linking Farms and Catchments to Modernisation and Growing Food and Fibre initiatives. These videos have been delivered primarily through partnerships between the DEPI, water corporations, Catchment Management authorities and other bodies, and include additional footage provided by Goulburn-Murray Water.
The videos can be viewed on the Victorian Water Register website.
For more information about changes to the carryover rules, please refer to the fact sheets available on the website.
