Assessing the Salinity Impacts on changes to Irrigation on the Riverine Plains - Phase 1 Report

RPS Aquaterra and RMCG were engaged by the Murray–Darling Basin Authority to undertake an 'Assessment of the Salinity Impacts on Changes to Irrigation in the Riverine Plains'. The Riverine Plains is defined as the areas upstream of the Murray River at Swan Hill and upstream of the Wakool River at Kyalite. The project's main objectives are to determine how best to identify, characterise and account for irrigation changes on the Riverine Plains in the context of the Basin Salinity Management Strategy and the post 2015 operational plan. The primary source of information used is via a detailed review of relevant literature to enable the development of this framework. This report is the first Phase of four project phases.
