Our work for the Murray-Darling Basin

The EDO has been defending the Murray-Darling river system for years. Since the Basin Plan was made, we’ve acted as an independent watchdog, identifying problems with mismanagement, over-extraction and a failure to consider the effects of climate change on the system. 

We provide regular expert analysis, opinion and news on Basin issues, so sign up below to keep up with the EDO's water news.

In court for the Murray-Darling

We’re in Court representing the Inland Rivers Network, with a civil enforcement case against a large-scale irrigator on the Barwon-Darling river. This case is seeking remedies that will actually return desperately needed water to the river system. Find out more about our litigation here: Inland Rivers Network vs Harris and another.
