The West Campaspe Groundwater Management Area (GMA) extends from Huntly in the south to Cohuna in the north and includes the townships of Leitchville, Gunbower and Huntly.

There is increased interest in new licences for the West Campaspe GMA. A Local Management Plan (LMP) ensures that the resource can be managed appropriately and fairly for all licence holders.

The development of a local management plan provides clear management rules for groundwater resources in that region.

LMPs are developed by GMW in consultation with existing groundwater users, stakeholder agencies and the wider community who will all be invited to comment on a draft plan.

We’re asking for feedback from groundwater users in the region – your input will help shape the next steps in drafting the plan. We would love to hear your local groundwater knowledge, identify any groundwater resource management issues or any concerns you have.
