Green Lake Waterway Action Plan

The Green Lake Waterway Action Plan final draft has been completed by Wimmera CMA and Water Technology.

The Waterway Action Plan reviewed environmental, social, cultural and economic values, and threats to these values, on Green Lake and its’ two main tributaries (Diggers Creek and Mibus Creek). The community was consulted in this project to help provide confirmed experience and knowledge.

Objectives for the future management of the Green Lake and its’ main tributaries were developed with stakeholders and the community during consultation. The primary objective of the project, to develop appropriate actions to reduce the incidence of blue-green algal (BGA) blooms within Green Lake. Many of the key actions to achieve this primary objective provide additional benefits to waterway health, water quality and habitat improvement. Ultimately, a reduction in BGA blooms will increase the social, health, economic and environmental values of Green Lake.

Key Management Principles

The Key Management Principles identified in this project include:

  • Vegetation establishment
  • Riparian fencing for stock management
  • Weed management.
  • Structural intervention to manage bank erosion


We are happy to take any feedback from the community on the plan up until the 20th May.
