About this tool: In Victoria, areas from which water corporations draw water are often given a level of protection under the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994. The areas of declared potable water supply catchments may have special requirements when a property owner or developer wants to undertake works, develop or subdivide, as permitted under the local Municipal Planning Scheme.
This interactive map is designed to assist landowners in these catchments to navigate any special requirements when developing a property in a declared potable water supply catchment.
