Release of unallocated water

On 18 June 2014, the Chief Executive of the Department of Natural Resources and Mines started a process to release water from the general reserves of unallocated water in the Kelsey Creek-Lethe Brook, Thompson Creek, O'Connell River and Andromache River subcatchment areas of the Water Plan (Whitsunday) 2010.

This tender process has been completed. No water licences were granted.

The department is currently preparing a report summarising the outcomes of the tender process.
