Planning for 2023-24
Every year, the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder publishes a Water Management Plan. It outlines how we plan to use water for the environment across the Basin's rivers and wetlands under a range of different weather and water availability conditions at both the valley and Basin-scale.
Our plan looks at:
- how much water is expected to be available
- the seasonal rainfall outlook
- plant, animal, river and wetland health.
Every year is different.
The Commonwealth holds the following entitlement types in the Mid-Murray region:
- NSW Murray High Security
- NSW Murray General Security
- NSW Murray Conveyance
- NSW Murray Supplementary
- NSW Murray Groundwater
- NSW Murray Unregulated
- Victorian Murray High Reliability
- Victorian Murray Low Reliability
