Water Sensitive Farm Design

The Water Sensitive Farm Design pilot program through Melbourne Water provides financial assistance and advice to land mangers to undertake on farm works that keeps soil and nutrients on farm and out of waterways. The innovative pilot program is part of Melbourne Water’s River Health Incentives Program. The program has been designed to improve on-farm management practices and support increased productivity, while helping to improve the health of waterways for the benefit of the broader community.

The program is available to eligible land managers in the Woori Yallock catchment, however, flexibility exists for opportunities for landholders outside of these target areas. Funding is available for a range of works on farm up to $40,000 on a cost share basis
