Review of Cap Implementation 2008–09
Following the adoption of Schedule E by the Council for operationalising, monitoring and reporting on Cap implementation, this audit was conducted in line with the requirements of Clause 15 of the Schedule. At 4133 GL, diversion from rivers in the Murray–Darling Basin was the lowest since 1957 reflecting continuing severe drought conditions throughout most of the Basin. The results for 2008–09 continue the recent pattern of lowest diversions on record for the Basin.
