Integrated Water Management Plan | Dhumbali W’urneet Gadhaba

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on the Integrated Water Management Plan. Engagement on this project has now closed and feedback is being reviewed. Outcomes will be shared once they are available.


As part of Our Climate Emergency Response Strategy 2021–2025 | Dhumbali Wurrungi-biik Parbin-ata, we committed to developing a new Integrated Water Management Plan for Glen Eira.

The Plan is an important part of our climate emergency response as climate impacts are changing our relationship with water – storms and flooding are becoming more severe and frequent, and drought will affect water availability into the future.

The Plan or Dhumbali W’urneet Gadhaba, a commitment to working together with waterways, outlines a strategic approach for understanding and managing the cultural, environmental, social and economic importance of water in Glen Eira.

The three pillars of Kummargii Yulendji / Rising Knowledge Project provide a framework for understanding the six objectives of the plan, from the perspective of Dhumbali W’urneet Gadhaba / a commitment to working with water. Under the six objectives in the plan, each has a series of initiatives and actions for Council to transform the way we approach water management, as well as actions to support the community to do the same.


The three pillars, along with the six objectives, provide a cross cultural framework for integrated water management as illustrated below.



We would like to know how Council can work with you to better plan for and use water responsibly in a changed and changing climate. Feel free to review the Integrated Water Management Plan Summary before providing your feedback.
