The Glenelg River water management area is located within the South East Coast Drainage Division, in western Victoria. Southern Rural Water is the licensing authority and manages both surface and groundwater diversions across the entire water management area except for the Glenelg River above the bridge on Casterton-Harrow Road, which is managed by Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water.
Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water also manages the Wimmera-Mallee water supply system which includes Rocklands and Moora Moora Reservoirs and several other small diversions weirs in the upper Glenelg and Wannon Rivers. Wannon Water supplies water to the majority of towns in the water management area, with the exception of Harrow which is supplied by Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water. The Glenelg-Hopkins Catchment Management Authority is responsible for waterway management in the Glenelg River water management area.
