ACT (Surface Water) – Water resource plan

The Australian Capital Territory provided the proposed Australian Capital Territory (surface water) Water Resource Plan (proposed WRP) package for assessment to the Murray–Darling Basin Authority (the MDBA) under the Water Act 2007 (Cth). At the time of publication, a recommendation on accreditation has not yet been made by the MDBA to the Commonwealth Minister responsible for water. The proposed WRP is not operational. The publication of the proposed WRP on the MDBA’s website is to enable transparency.

The MDBA will publish all WRP submission documents as soon as practical. This page was update on the 31 May 2019.
