Objectives and Outcomes for River Operations in the River Murray System

The MDBA directs river operations in the River Murray System in accordance with objectives and outcomes set by the Basin Officials Committee.

The 'Objectives and Outcomes for River Operations in the River Murray System' are based around five themes:

  • Water storage, delivery and accounting;
  • River Murray Operations (RMO) assets;
  • People and communities;
  • Environment; and
  • Information and communication

The objectives and outcomes include an appendix of 'Specific Objectives and Outcomes for River Operations in the River Murray System' that provide detail on how the agreed rules for river operations relate to the general objectives and outcomes. For example, those associated with the rules for maximum releases from water storages.
