Many work practices in the past have caused major degradation of our waterways.

To protect and rehabilitate our rivers and creeks we need to ensure that any works undertaken on designated waterways do not adversely affect the health of those waterways.

Works and activities within the bed and banks of designated waterways in the north central region of Victoria require a permit from the North Central CMA.

Works and activities may include bridges, culverts, fords, service crossings, stormwater outlets, drop structures, stream deviations, extractions, bed and bank stabilisation, large woody debris removal, vegetation management.

Poorly constructed crossings and other structures can cause erosion, obstruct water flow and hinder the passage of fauna and aquatic life.
