Draft replacement Water Sharing Plan for the Tweed River Area Unregulated and Alluvial Water Sources

Scenic country views of Mount Warning in the Tweed Range.

Public exhibition of the replacement Water Sharing Plan for the Tweed River Area Unregulated and Alluvial Water Sources 2023 will run from 31 October to 18 December 2022.

The water sharing plan establishes rules for water management including the limit of the total volume of water that can be extracted from the water sources in the Tweed River Area Unregulated and Alluvial Water Sharing Plan area.

Water sharing plans are subject to review every 10 years under the Water Management Act 2000. The current water sharing plan for the Tweed River Area Unregulated and Alluvial Water Sources 2010 will expire on 30 June 2023.

The public exhibition period provides opportunities for water users, stakeholders and other interested parties to learn more about proposed changes in the draft plan, and to make submissions and comment on the draft. Feedback and issues raised during the public exhibition phase will be considered when finalising the plan.

The finalised replacement plan is proposed to commence by 1 July 2023.
