Under the Water Reform and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2014, water resource plans and resource operation plans are being replaced. We will make these amended documents available once completed. Read more about the changes to water legislation.

Water plan

A Statement of Proposals (PDF, 678.7KB) for a proposed targeted amendment to the Water Plan (Burdekin Basin) 2007 has been released for public consultation. The proposed amendment will focus on the subcatchments upstream of Burdekin Falls Dam—namely the Belyando-Suttor, Cape-Campaspe, and Upper Burdekin subcatchments. The proposed amendment will better define entitlements and establish tradeable water allocations aimed at providing security of access for existing water users while allowing for creation and potential future expansion in water markets.
