The Murray-Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) has released its draft Basin Plan, starting off a 20 week consultation period that will examine and tweak the Authority’s plan.


The plan will see 2750 gigalitres released into the system, a significant reduction in earlier estimates that ranged from 3,000 to 4,000.
