Environmental Protection Policy (Water) consultation

Consultation on draft environmental values, water quality objectives and aquatic ecosystem protection mapping is open for the following region:

The final draft consultation materials (water quality objectives, reports, mapping) for the Queensland Murray-Darling and Bulloo River Basin regions are provided in the table below.

  • Closing date for submissions: 30 September 2018

All submissions received during the first round of public consultation have been considered and the final draft consultation materials have been developed. These include revised environmental values, water quality objectives and aquatic ecosystem protection mapping for all water types and groundwater aquifers across the Queensland Murray-Darling and Bulloo River Basin (QMDB).

The water quality objectives across the QMDB have been updated on the basis of additional water quality monitoring data provided by stakeholders for both surface waters and groundwaters.

Submissions on the final draft consultation materials can be submitted by email to .

For further information, or if you wish to meet to discuss the final draft consultation materials further, email us at .

Consultation for the following regions has closed and submissions are being considered:
