Derby groundwater allocation plan

Closed 31 May 2021

Opened 19 Nov 2020


The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation is responsible for managing the availability and quality of water. Developing water allocation plans is one of the ways we manage the state’s water resources.

The department sought feedback on the Derby groundwater allocation plan: for public comment.

The plan outlines how much water can be taken from groundwater resources in the Derby region and what local policies and conditions will be applied to water licences issued under the Rights in Water and Irrigation Act 1914.

The plan was open for public comment from 19 November 2020 to 31 May 2021.

Consultation update

We thank everyone who made a submission during the consultation phase.

The extensive feedback gathered during consultation will inform future water allocation planning in the area.
