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.

We are seeking feedback on the Derby groundwater allocation plan.

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.
