Water plan information

Notification of existing overland flow works

Landowners must notify us of existing overland flow works (with capacity greater than 20 megalitres) as soon as possible.

This includes notification of works for stock and domestic purposes, capturing contaminated agricultural run-off, and storages required to meet the conditions of an environmental authority under the Environmental Protection Act 1994. Failure to notify of works could result in the unauthorised take of overland flow water in breach of the Water Act 2000.

Use form W2F019 – Notification of existing overland flow works (PDF, 273KB).
