Carryover Rules to be Reviewed

Save the date: Tuesday, February 4 at LRC

The South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management (SAMDB NRM) Board, in partnership with the Department for Environment and Water (DEW), is considering potential amendments to the private carryover policy included in the River Murray Water Allocation Plan.

The Board has heard that improvements can be made to the private carryover policy after implementation of the policy in the 2019-20 water use year.

The Board intends to prepare an amendment to the water allocation plan incorporating changes to the policy, with consultation on a draft plan scheduled to begin in January 2020.

Consultation in early 2020 will ensure that any changes, if supported by the community, are in place by the first opening allocation announcement due to be made in April 2020.

An information session to discuss the changes proposed will be held at the Loxton Research Centre on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 (11am to 1pm).

There will also be other opportunities to discuss the changes and provide feedback.

A two-month consultation period will be announced in early January. Further information outlining the changes will be provided on the Natural Resources SA Murray-Darling Basin website once consultation commences.
