Water recovery factors for South Australia

The South Australian Government, with support from the Murray–Darling Basin Authority (MDBA), has been working on updating the 2011 factors. The updated factors have been released by the South Australian Government.

These factors will be used to update the estimates of water recovered in South Australia and determine whether the water recovery targets under the Basin Plan have been met.

In updating the factors, the South Australian Government considered:

  • water availability over the 114-year historical climate period
  • the permitted long-term average water use for a group of entitlements over the historical climate period
  • local rules regarding water access in the water allocation plan.
