Technical Review of SDL Submissions
Client: Murray-Darling Basin Authority
Garry Smith and Denis Flett of DG Consulting were part of a team which undertook a technical review of submissions in response to the Issues Paper – Development of Sustainable Diversion Limits for the Murray-Darling Basin. The review provided advice on the technical merit of ideas and proposals from the submissions about the setting of sustainable diversion limits (SDLs), for consideration by the MDBA in preparing the Proposed Basin Plan.
The review team were also briefed on the approaches being taken by MDBA staff in the development of SDLs, identified key issues associated with setting and managing SDLs, and provided advice in relation to various policy and management options to address the identified key issues.
