To manage the complexity of the Murrumbidgee Water Resource Plan Area, the Murrumbidgee Long-Term Water Plan (LTWP) has been divided into 29 planning units (PUs). This document, which forms Part B of the LTWP, provides the local-scale information for each PU including:

  • 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 PUs priority environmental assets.
  • Objectives for native fish, showing relevant species. The objectives for each PU are outlined in Part A of the LTWP (Appendix A). Only native fish objectives are shown in Part B as these objectives are highly species specific.
  • For key PUs that are regulated or that can be affected by regulated water, environmental water requirements to support key ecological values and related LTWP objectives and targets that are presented for representative gauge/s in the PU.
  • For PUs that are unregulated, 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.
