Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority environmental water project officer Jo Wood said the water would help re-establish flora and fauna at the wetlands.

‘‘Frogs have started laying eggs and some vegetation has already emerged and begun flowering — the recent good rain no doubt has helped,’’ Ms Wood said.
