Annual water use surveys

Water licence holders in the South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management region have a significant role in helping to monitor water resources in the area.

The annual water use survey completed by licensees gathers information on how people used their allocations over the water use year, and how this may change in the future. This information is important for managing water resources in the region based on the changing needs of the community.

It is a water licence condition to complete an annual water use survey for most of the prescribed water resource areas in the region.

Information that is provided in the surveys is collated into a summary of annual water use information across each prescribed area. Links to newsletters including summary information from previous surveys are given below.

Other data and information relating to water resources are available on the WaterConnect website here.
