The Murray–Darling Basin Authority has conducted a Basin-wide Compliance Review to report on the legislative, policy and practical implementation of compliance in water management.
Five years into the Basin Plan, it's time to check how things are going. At this early stage, there are some good signs the Plan is working and on track.
Adjusting Sustainable Diversion Limits is a key step in delivering the Basin Plan. The Murray–Darling Basin Authority has assessed a suite of projects, nominated by Basin state governments and determined the proposed adjustment to the Sustainable Diversion Limits.
The Basin Plan guides governments, regional authorities and communities to sustainably use and manage water in the Basin. It ensures a healthy and productive system for future generations.
Many key government agencies and advisory committees are involved in implementing the Basin Plan.
