Local community called to help shape the Reconnecting River Country Program

Private landholders are invited to share their local knowledge and expertise to help shape the future of the Reconnecting River Country Program.

The local community will be able to share their experiences and discuss key parts of the program, including flow rates and potential mitigation options, with Local Land Services field staff. Their feedback will help develop the program’s next phase.

Private landholders who live near rivers in the following areas are invited to take part:

  • Hume to Yarrawonga (Murray River)
  • Yarrawonga to Wakool Junction (Murray River)
  • Murrumbidgee River (including Yanco Creek)

Launched earlier this month, the Reconnecting River Country Program aims to ensure water for the environment is delivered where and when it is needed in the southern connected Murray-Darling Basin, to improve the health and resilience of rivers, wetlands and floodplains.

During the program’s feedback phase, Local Land Services will consult with private landholders and owners.

For more information on how to provide feedback and on eligibility, visit: dpie.nsw.gov.au/reconnecting-river-country-program 

Applications close 1 October 2021.
