About the Regional NRM levy

Anyone who owns a rateable property. In other words, pays council rates, contributes to the Regional NRM levy.

How is the Regional NRM levy collected?

The Regional NRM levy is collected by local councils on behalf of the South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board. The Regional NRM levy is included as a separate line item on your council rates notice.

Collection via council rates notices is by far the most efficient and cost effective way to collect the Regional NRM levy, which means more money is re-invested into important NRM priorities across the region and the communities that benefit.

How is the Regional NRM levy calculated?

Just like council rates, Regional NRM levy contributions are calculated based on the capital value of land and charged annually.
