Steels Creek

We set trigger levels using historical stream flow data for both the implementation and lifting of bans on the taking and use of water.

The triggers have been set to ensure water is shared fairly between licenced diverters and the environment.

Trigger levels

Dates Ban Restriction
1 Dec - 30 Jun All -
1 Jul - 30 Nov 5 -

Bans are implemented when a catchment-specific trigger has been met, based on an instantaneous stream flow.  Bans are lifted based on the seven day average stream flow.

Note: Cannot resume taking water until the seven day average rises above the stream flow triggers referred to above.

The full details for the licence conditions can be found in the stream flow management plan for Steels, Pauls and Dixons Creek.

Flow levels are monitored by gauges (data logging stations) that provide continuous flow readings. The data logging station for Steels Creek is located at Yarra Glen (229246C).
