Intergovernmental Agreement on Implementing Water Reform in the Murray Darling Basin

Friday, 29 May 2015

On 5 June 2013, a new Intergovernmental Agreement between the Commonwealth and States on Implementing Water Reform in the Murray-Darling Basin came into effect. This Agreement builds on the 2008 Intergovernmental Agreement and supports the objectives of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, which passed through the Commonwealth Parliament in November 2012.

On 29 May 2015 the Murray-Darling Basin Ministerial Council agreed to amend Schedule 1 (Protocol for consideration of surface water sustainable diversion limit (SDL) adjustment measures) to reflect revised assessment timeframes for the SDL adjustment measures and constraints measures.
