Did you know?

While the Basin Plan provides a framework for implementation, it is crucial that we work together with the Basin states (Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and the Australian Capital Territory), water management authorities, Basin communities, Aboriginal people, industry and other key stakeholders to achieve a healthy, working Basin.

Throughout the Plan's implementation, we will work collaboratively with our partners to ensure the Basin continues to support communities, the environment and industry. We will address key considerations that will impact on the delivery of the Basin Plan to ensure the resources of the Basin are managed in an integrated and sustainable way.

For more information about how the Plan was developed see the Basin Plan section.

The Basin Plan Evaluation has considered a range of information and data in making its assessment of the Basin Plan.

The Murray–Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) has recommended the Sustainable Diversion Limit in the Basin Plan be adjusted.

The Sustainable Diversion Limit Adjustment Mechanism

The Basin Plan sets Sustainable Diversion Limits, which is how much water can be used in the Murray–Darling Basin, while leaving enough water for the environment.
