Water Allocation Plan for the Far North Prescribed Wells

The SA Arid Lands NRM Board is reviewing the Water Allocation Plan (WAP) for the Far North Prescribed Wells Area and is seeking comments and feedback from the community.

The first of three stages of consultation on the revised Water Allocation Plan has commenced with various stakeholders notified about the plan’s review and provided with information and a survey to gather opinions about the strengths and weaknesses of the current plan. 

The initial consultation phase also included a meeting of Traditional Owners in Port Augusta in November 2017 and meetings with the Board’s two district groups included in the Far North Prescribed Wells Area: the Marla Oodnadatta District and the Marree Innamincka District.

Specific issues and policy positions will be discussed through a series of discussion papers and focus group meetings in the second stage of consultation in 2018.   And the final phase will be the statutory consultation on the draft plan, prior to draft plan being presented to the Minister for consideration and adoption by July 2019.
