Basin Plan Amendment Instrument 2017 (No 1)

The NFF’s 17 February 2017 submission responds to the MDBA’s draft recommendation to reduce the water recovery target in the northern Basin from 370GL to 320GL. The proposal by the MDBA to lower the recovery target from 390 GL to 320 GL. NFF’s view that this recommendation does not go far enough and still means that around 450 jobs will be lost from the small communities of the Northern Basin.
