Burdekin Basin water plan
The expiry date of the Water Plan (Burdekin Basin) 2007 has been postponed by three years to 1 September 2026.
This will allow the department to complete technical assessments and undertake additional consultation as part of preparing a replacement plan.
Submission received as part of the preliminary public consultation earlier this year will still be considered as we continue to consult on the plan and the emerging needs of water users in the catchment.
If you need any further information or wish to discuss the Burdekin Basin water plan with someone from the department, please contact us.
