Water recovery program aims to provide water to contribute to the achievement of ecological objectives under The Living Murray. One of the key objectives of the Intergovernmental Agreement is a cost effective, permanent recovery of water to achieve the environmental outcomes of The Living Murray program’s First Step decision. More than $500 million is being invested to recover 500GL of water for the environment.
There are a number of ways in which this water can be recovered, including:
The process of water recovery:
Although most proposals have come from Governments, water recovery projects can be proposed to The Living Murray by anyone at any time. Guidelines have been developed to assist those who would like to propose a new project, and are available for download through the Water Recovery Guidelines page. The guidelines include references to the original and Supplementary Inter Governmental Agreement, along with The Living Murray Business Plan. More information on these documents is available on the 'background' page of this site.
