NSW Online Water Forum

Let’s talk about water!  

We all need it – this continent would be uninhabitable without its ancient rivers, deep aquifers and wetlands bursting with abundant wildlife.  

But inland rivers have taken a hiding in the last 130 years, with unlimited irrigation bringing the Murray-Darling Basin to its knees during the shocking millennial drought.  

And so a Plan was made. The Murray-Darling Basin Plan is a world-first across borders plan. A bold plan to manage the vast, intricate Basin as a connected whole.  

Political compromises diluted the Plan, and a decade of political inaction has derailed it even further. How can we get the Plan back on track? 

How can we truly manage the entire basin - from the Mighty Murray to the Darling-Baaka - as an interconnected whole?
