Murrumbidgee Alluvium

Topic: Environment

The Department of Industry is seeking feedback on the Murrumbidgee Alluvium Water Resource Plan.

What's this about?

The groundwater resources of the Murrumbidgee Alluvium include the main alluvial deposits associated with the Murrumbidgee River, including its tributaries and anabranches from Jugiong to Balranald.

They also include the alluvial deposits of the internally draining Lake George catchment which occur to the south of Lake George.

This draft plan applies to all groundwater in the following groundwater sustainable diversion limit resource units:

  • Lake George Alluvium (GS21)
  • Mid Murrumbidgee Alluvium (GS31)
  • Lower Murrumbidgee Alluvium Shallow (GS28a)
  • Lower Murrumbidgee Alluvium Deep (GS28b).

Water resource plans are a key requirement of the Commonwealth Basin Plan 2012. The plan determines how water resources will be managed. It shows the resources covered, their level of development, environmental assets and geography affecting the way the rivers are managed. The plan also includes a number of statutory and policy documents.

All feedback is welcome, including any new evidence or information that could be considered in the final accreditation of the water resource plan.
