Healthy water is essential to sustain the many demands that we as a community place on our water environments. Without it we could not drink or grow agricultural products, nor do many things that support our wellbeing and economy – what we label beneficial uses of water.
Safeguarding our water environments can not be achieved by one organisation or a few individuals alone. We all impact on water environments through everyday activities so we must all work together to better manage our actions and reduce our impacts.
EPA helps protect Victoria’s water environments through environmental laws, policies and regulatory controls, and by working in partnership with Victorian communities, including businesses, government, individuals and groups.
