Water sharing plan evaluations

Two water sharing plan evaluation reports were completed in 2017 covering major regulated rivers and groundwater sources within the NSW portion of the Murray–Darling Basin. The major regulated rivers report covers the period 2004 – 2015 and the major groundwater sources report covers the period 2006 – 2016.

Since these reports were written, considerable effort has been applied to the development of replacement water sharing plans and associated water resource plans made under the Basin Plan 2012. Many of the findings and recommendations contained within these historical evaluation reports have been addressed during this process.
