Eastern Mount Lofty Ranges Water resource plan

South Australia formally submitted the proposed Eastern Mount Lofty Ranges Water Resource Plan (proposed WRP) package for assessment to the Murray–Darling Basin Authority (the MDBA) under the Water Act 2007 (Cth) on 26 February 2019. On 14 August 2019, South Australia withdrew the proposed WRP and re-submitted a revised WRP package.

The MDBA has completed assessment of the WRP against Basin Plan requirements and the Authority has made a recommendation to the Commonwealth Minister reponsible for water (the Minister). The proposed WRP is currently with the Minister for consideration and decision on accreditation. 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 updated on 10 October 2019.
