To address variation along the Barwon–Darling River, the Barwon–Darling Long-Term Water Plan (LTWP) has been divided into 14 planning units. This document, which forms Part B of the LTWP, provides the following local-scale information for each planning unit:

  • the location of priority environmental assets identified as part of LTWP development.
  • the ecological values, including native fish and waterbird species, and native vegetation communities that occur within the planning units’ priority environmental assets.
  • objectives for native fish, showing relevant species. The objectives for each planning unit are outlined in Part A of the LTWP (Appendix B). Only native fish objectives are shown in Part B as these objectives are highly species specific, so the species are listed with the objectives here.
  • environmental water requirements (EWRs) to support key ecological values and related LTWP objectives and targets are presented for representative gauge/s in the planning unit.
  • an evaluation of the impact of water resource development on local hydrology and recommended management strategies for mitigating these changes to meet LTWP objectives and targets.
