South Australian River Murray water resource plan

South Australia formally submitted the proposed South Australian River Murray water resource plan package for assessment to the Murray–Darling Basin Authority (the MDBA) under the Water Act 2007 (Cth) on the 28 February 2019. On the 14 August 2019 South Australia withdrew the proposed WRP package and re-submitted a revised WRP package. 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.
