About Our Team

As part of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, the Sustainable Diversion Limit Adjustment Mechanism Program is developing supply and efficiency measure projects to help recover water for the environment and productive use. The Murray-Darling Basin Plan sets sustainable diversion limits (SDL), which states how much water can be used in the Murray-Darling Basin, while leaving enough water for the environment. The limits aim to ensure that there is sufficient water to maintain the environmental health of the Murray-Darling Basin, by limiting the amount of water that can be extracted from the Basin, while considering the social and economic impacts of water recovery.
