Sustainable diversion limit adjustment mechanism program – progress reporting

The MDBA produces annual reports to track progress, and also publishes quarterly dashboards which aim to provide a regular overview of progress.

Quarterly reporting is through publication of a quarterly dashboard compiled through information supplied by state governments.

The latest quarterly dashboard below is for the April – June 2021 period.

  • In this period, most projects remain in a design phase with the projects in implementation phase well progressed and on track. This phasing, in addition to the timing of existing project milestones has meant that project status since the original report in May 2021 remains the same.
  • Identified risks continue to be managed and as projects progress, more significant changes such as NSW's accelerated projects and consultation on NSW's recently launched Reconnecting River Country Program, will be reflected. Where appropriate, future quarterly dashboards will also provide information on financial status. 

Before quarterly reporting commenced, Indec Pty Ltd was commissioned by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment to provide a high-level assessment of the status of the Sustainable Diversion Limit Adjustment Mechanism (SDLAM) program.

At the Murray–Darling Basin Ministerial Council strategic discussion on 29 April 2021, Ministers agreed to publish the report to provide communities with information as at April 2021 about the progress of the projects. All figures in the report are subject to change until the MDBA models the final delivered package of measures.
