What area does the plan cover?
The NSW Murray-Darling Basin Porous Rock Water Resource Plan covers groundwater located within the sedimentary basins in the NSW portion of the Murray-Darling Basin as well as alluvial sediments that overlie these sediments that have not been explicitly captured elsewhere.
The NSW Murray Darling Basin Porous Rock (GW6) is composed of four sustainable diversion limit resource units (SDL resource units):
- Gunnedah-Oxley Basin MDB (GS17)
- Oaklands Basin (GS38)
- Sydney Basin MDB (GS41)
- Western Porous Rock (GS50)
Public exhibition of the NSW Murray-Darling Basin Porous Rock WRP is now closed. All submissions have been reviewed by the Department of Planning and Environment. Public information sessions were held at Gunnedah, Orange and Yass in August 2019.
