This document summarises both the problems and the solutions to an issue that successive governments have failed to resolve – the serious impacts of unrestricted livestock grazing on river health. It reaffirms scientific data that has been known for some time by water experts, decision makers and governments. The report also offers clear policy solutions and timelines that will assist the Victorian Government to deliver sound public policy which, in turn, will deliver clear public-good outcomes
on some of the most important environmental, community. (VNPA, 2011)
