Release of amended cap factors
What's this about?
Cap factors, also known as long-term diversion limit equivalence factors (LTDLE factors), are an accounting tool to keep track of how much water has been recovered for the environment under the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.
The factors were developed together with the Murray-Darling Basin Authority by considering historic use patterns, climatic data and trade information.
The amended factors are an update on the released 2011 factors, which have been further developed to take into account the most accurate and up-to-date information and ensure a consistent approach across the Basin.
