Draft Environmental Water Recovery Strategy for the Murray-Darling Basin

The Australian Government released a draft Environmental Water Recovery Strategy for the Murray-Darling Basin for public consultation in November 2012.

The draft Strategy outlines the Government's future approach to environmental water recovery in the Murray-Darling Basin. This includes water recovery through investment in more efficient water delivery infrastructure, environmental works and measures, and water purchase.

The consultation period for the draft Strategy closed on 22 March 2013. The department is now considering the content of submissions received as part of the work to finalise the Strategy.

The final Strategy will be regularly updated to take account of Basin Plan developments and water recovery from various Government programs.
