The Government has committed $100 million over 10 years through the Freshwater Improvement Fund to support initiatives which improve the management of fresh water within quality and quantity limits.

The fund focuses on projects that will make a significant and measurable improvement to rivers, lakes, streams, groundwater and wetlands, with priority on the most vulnerable catchments.

This dataset shows catchments that have been classified as vulnerable (as defined by the criteria for the Freshwater Improvement Fund).
