Setting and reviewing standards

State Environment Protection Policy (Waters) review


The Victorian Government has prioritised the protection and improvement of Victoria’s water environments. To ensure Victoria has clear and relevant standards, legal rules and statutory obligations to protect and improve the health of our water environments, the government is reviewing two key policies: the State Environment Protection Policy (Waters of Victoria) and the State Environment Protection Policy (Groundwaters of Victoria).

This will be known as the SEPP (Waters) review. This review is being managed by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), in collaboration with EPA Victoria.

Further information on the review can be found on the DELWP website.
