Victorian Murray – Water resource plan

Victoria formally submitted the proposed Victorian Murray Water Resource Plan (proposed WRP) package for assessment to the Murray–Darling Basin Authority (the MDBA) under the Water Act 2007 (Cth) on 26 November 2019.

A previous version of the proposed WRP was submitted in April 2019. In September 2019 Victoria was notified of the grounds on which the Authority considered that it should recommend the Minister not accredit the proposed WRP. On 22 November 2019, Victoria withdrew the version submitted in April 2019 and then submitted a new version on 26 November 2019.

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. Note Victoria has presented the proposed WRP in combination with the proposed Goulburn Murray and Northern Victoria WRPs.
