Houseboat Greywater Treatment System & Packages Lake Eildon

Goulburn Murray Water (GM Water) is responsible for managing the water storage at Lake Eildon - which is the only inland body of water in Victoria that permits the use of houseboats. With over 700 houseboats on Lake Eildon, it is vital that we ensure the long term sustainability of houseboat operations and subsequent water quality. As per GM Water regulations, all Houseboats on Lake Eildon are required to have a Greywater Treatment System fitted in accordance with the following:


  • All new houseboats to have a Greywater Treatment System installed

  • Existing houseboats that require a transfer of licence after 1 July 2015

  • All houseboats on Lake Eildon by 1 July 2020 are required to have an installed Greywater Treatment System.
