August 2015 - Download PDF

In our submission, we argue that water sharing plans should be assessed by the Natural Resources Commission against clear criteria including: the Water Management Act 2000 ; Basin Plan (where relevant); ecologically sustainable development; best available science; intergovernmental agreements, including Intergovernmental Agreement on a National Water Initiative; and whether or not the yield is sustainable.
