Client: Department of Industry and Environment – Water
As part of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, DPIE Water is developing supply and efficiency measure projects to help recover water for the environment. The plan includes a sustainable diversion limit adjustment mechanism (SDLAM), which states how much water can be used in the Murray-Darling Basin, while leaving enough water for the environment. Any SDLAM project needs to ensure that environmental, social, and economic outcomes are properly balanced.
