The Victorian Enironmental Water Holder (VEWH) is the independent statutory body responsible for holding and managing Victoria’s environmental water entitlements (the Water Holdings). The use of the Water Holdings for environmental watering is critical in ensuring Victoria’s rivers, wetlands and floodplains continue to maintain and improve the environmental benefits communities value most.

The VEWH works with catchment management authorities and Melbourne Water to ensure environmental water entitlements are used to achieve the best environmental outcome with the water that is available.
