Basin-wide environmental watering strategy 2019

A large river red gum tree surrounded by Little Rushy Swamp in flood in Victoria.

Background

The Basin-wide environmental watering strategy (the Strategy) is the long-term watering plan for the Basin.

It sets out the improvements that we expect to see for river flows and connectivity, native vegetation, waterbirds and native fish with the water being recovered for the Basin environment and other measures to improve flows in the river system.

We published the first Strategy in 2014 and recently reviewed it. The review gathered the views of primary users of the strategy, internal and external to the MBDA as well as key stakeholders.

We have used this feedback to develop the draft Basin-wide environmental watering strategy 2019, and are now seeking final input.

This is your opportunity to have your say on the proposed changes.
