The Western Davenport Water Allocation Plan 2018-2021 was declared on 28 December 2018. The plan replaces the Western Davenport Water Allocation Plan 2011-2021. It has a lifespan of three years and will be renewed in this time frame.

The plan was developed in consultation with the Western Davenport Water Advisory Committee.

Water management arrangements focus on meeting the values of all water users. A principal objective of the plan is to maintain groundwater levels for the requirements of water dependent ecosystems.

There are no annual announced allocations for water extraction licences in the plan area.

The Department is establishing a water advisory committee to evaluate the current plan and provide stakeholder recommendations to guide the development of the new 10 year Plan.

The Department will develop a review report to inform the new 10 year Plan.

A ‘Have your Say’ survey and public submissions period will also inform the new plan’s development.
