The Murray-Darling Basin Authority has released the revised Basin Plan to ministers as part of the next step in the process of developing a plan for the Murray–Darling Basin.
The MDBA also released a report detailing the changes that have been made to the draft based on submissions received during the consultation period.
This version of the plan, titled the 'Proposed Basin Plan – A Revised Draft', now enters its ministerial and parliamentary process. It goes to all Basin water ministers for consideration for a maximum of six weeks, as stipulated by the Water Act. Following this, the Basin Plan will be given to the Federal Water Minister.
