Independent peer reviews on floodplain harvesting

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is working to build public confidence and trust in the process to ensure implementing the floodplain harvesting policy provides the best outcome for all water users and the environment. This includes significant investments in technology to build accuracy and confidence in floodplain harvesting volumetric entitlement estimates. We aim to ensure that the best current available technology, data and modelling is used and is peer reviewed.
