Water for the environment: It's all about the timing

Mar 01, 2021

The Victorian Environmental Water Holder released this video to explain about the timing of water releases.  
It's and oldy, but a goody too.

Believe it or not, not all water going down a river is delivering benefits for plants and animals.

Water is released into rivers for different purposes, some of it is for farms to irrigate, some is for households and some is specifically for plants and animals who need water at particular times for their lifecycle – this is what we call environmental water. It serves a special purpose.
