Friends of the Barwon was formed by concerned citizens in response to cease to flow events in the Barwon river. in 2016, there was no flow for four months at Winchelsea and in 2018, for three months. These “cease to flow events “critically affect survival of aquatic species and river ecology, and reflect the other extraction of water from our local rivers.
“It is vital that the current Central and Gippsland Sustainable Water Strategy is environmentally ambitious so that we can leave the legacy of a healthy river system for our grandchildren”
