Mary Basin water plan

The process to replace the  Water Plan (Mary Basin) 2006 has commenced. We need to develop a replacement plan to address current and emerging issues within the water plan area in order for us to continue the sustainable management of water in the basin.

Preliminary public consultation notice

On 27 May 2021, the Minister for Regional Development and Manufacturing and Minister for Water published a preliminary public consultation notice (PDF, 115KB). Submissions on this notice closed on 30 July 2021.

We will consider all submissions as we develop the draft replacement Mary Basin water plan.

Postponement of water plan expiry date

As the process to replace the water plan has now started, a notice has been gazetted to postpone the expiry date of the Water Plan (Mary Basin) 2006 to 28 May 2024.

Postponing the expiry date will allow the department to complete technical assessments and undertake consultation to replace the water plan.
