Glenelg Hopkins CMA has Waterway Management functions in our region.
As Waterway Manager under the Water Act 1989 the CMA has the following functions:
* Protecting and enhancing waterway health

What are designated waterways
Designated Waterways are declared by the CMA through a publicly gazetted process. This process was undertaken by Glenelg Hopkins CMA in 2001. To find out whether you have a designated waterway on your property please go to Waterway Mapping below.
What are works and activities
Works and activities on or near a waterway can include:
* Building a crossing - culverts, bridge or ford
* Connecting to a waterway by pipe or drain
* Building a jetty
* Cleaning out the waterway - removing weeds and silt
If you are unsure if what you want to do requires a licence from the CMA please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
