The West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority (WGCMA) is responsible for waterway and catchment management across the south-east corner of Victoria, Australia.

Environmental planning and on-ground works are undertaken in a socially responsive, environmentally sensitive manner in compliance with relevant Victorian legislation and in consultation with stakeholders.

The West Gippsland Region provides 95% of Victoria’s electricity, 60% of Melbourne’s water storage capacity, and 20% of Australia’s milk production.

Community, industry and government are working together to restore the health of the Thomson and Macalister Rivers and, ultimately, that of the Gippsland Lakes.

The region’s catchments drain south to Anderson and Corner Inlets, and east to the Gippsland Lakes. Activities within the catchments alter water flows and quality, affecting the health of rivers and these internationally important wetlands.
