The Water Resource Strategy Division is excited to announce that the 2020–21 Victorian Water Accounts (VWA) have been released: Victorian water accounts - Water Register.

This is the 18th report in the series, released alongside new iterations of the Highlights ( and the Online VWA (

The Highlights explain Victoria’s water entitlement and management frameworks, provide a high-level summary of water availability and use for the water year and illustrate water trends over time.

The Online Water Accounts provide detailed information on surface water and distribution systems in an interactive way. Users can follow water from its source through to where it is used by customers. The 2020-21, 2019–20 and 2018–19 reports will be available, along with a summary of groundwater use and availability for 2019-20 and 2020–21.

We are working towards moving future VWA reports wholly online. Our vision is to work with users to create an interactive web-based accounts experience that meets user needs. Please let the water reporting team know if you have any suggestions or would like to be involved in user testing when this is available.
