Riverine Plains Salinity Framework - Project Overview and Summary Report

RPS Aquaterra and RM Consulting Group 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 for the purposes of this study is defined as the areas upstream of the Murray River at Swan Hill and upstream of the Wakool River at Kyalite. The projects main objectives were 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, and
  • develop an Irrigation Salinity Assessment Framework (ISAF)to assess the salinity impacts of changes to irrigation water use on the Riverine Plains.
