Assessment of environmental water requirements - Northern Basin review

As part of the Northern Basin review we have re-assessed the environmental water requirements for the river systems. As a result of this assessment, updates were made to the Condamine-Balonne and Barwon-Darling environmental water requirements reports . The original environmental water requirements reports, for all the catchments in the Basin, are available here.

Please note, these assessments do not provide the Sustainable Diversion Limits.  Rather, they guide the selection of environmental flow indicators that are used in hydrological modelling to identify the environmental benefits from different levels of recovery. The information from the environmental assessments will be considered along with social and economic work to review the surface water Sustainable Diversion Limits for the northern Basin.
