Basin environmental watering outlook 2017–18

This year’s outlook describes seasonal and ecosystem conditions and provides an early indication of the likely watering priorities from 2017-18.

The Murray–Darling Basin Authority is anticipating wet conditions in early 2017-18, noting that this may change as the year progresses and is trending towards moderate to dry in parts of the northern Basin.

The focus of environmental watering will be to consolidate the benefits of high flows in 2016 and build resilience of ecosystems ahead of the next, inevitable dry period.
