Salinity targets review: Environmental values and data analysis

As part of the Basin planning process, MDBA is developing a Murray–Darling Basin Water Quality and Salinity Management Plan (WQSMP).

This review is the first in a series of four reports that documents a project conducted by Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM) for MDBA to:

  • review the existing end-of-valley targets under the Basin Salinity Management Strategy and Schedule B to the Murray–Darling Basin Agreement (Water Act 2007) with the expectation of providing directions on future end-of-valley targets and potential directions to integrate the existing arrangements with the Basin Planning process
  • develop a process for setting salinity objectives and targets for inclusion in the WQSMP
  • recommend salinity targets and objectives for inclusion in the WQSMP.
