Sustainable Diversion Limit Projects in the Murrumbidgee River

The Murray-Darling Basin Plan (Basin Plan) sets sustainable diversion limits (SDLs) - the amount of water that can be extracted annually for consumptive uses.

As part of the NSW Government’s continuing commitment to the Murray Darling Basin Plan we are seeking community input to three SDL projects in the Murrumbidgee River region:

  • Yanco Creek offtake
  • Modernisation of effluent creeks
  • Computer Aided River Management (CARM)

The NSW Government will be flexible and consider options while remaining committed to delivering its SDL commitments that include a significant contribution from these projects.
