The Murray-Darling Basin Authority announced today following a discussion of Authority members that, consistent with election caretaker period conventions, it will defer the release date of the Guide to the Proposed Murray-Darling Basin Plan.

The Authority understands the significant community interest in what the Proposed Basin Plan will put forward and is keen to provide stakeholders, irrigators and Basin communities with the opportunity of finding out what the Authority is proposing.

A meeting of the Authority made the judgement that the release date would be considered at the end of August.
