Have your say on the Mount Lofty Ranges Water Allocation Plans

News article |

The Eastern and Western Mount Lofty Ranges Water Allocation Plans (WAPs) have been in place for 10 years and we are now reviewing the effectiveness of the plans.

This year we will be sharing information about how our water resources are tracking and some of the key challenges ahead.

Importantly, we want to hear perspectives from water users, licence holders, community members and industry representatives to understand your experiences and views on the current water policies. What has worked well and where should future efforts be focussed?

Anyone wanting to be involved in the evaluations this year is encouraged to come along to one of the six drop-in sessions we’re holding around the region between 21 August and 8 of September. You can also provide feedback through our survey (open until September 30). Information about the survey and drop-in sessions can be found here.

The conversations we have this year will set the direction for the amendment process we will start next year. During the amendment process there will be time to test and explore new policies, and local communities and industries will have a key role in this.
