Abstract

The Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder (CEWH) is responsible under the Water Act 2007 (Commonwealth) for managing Commonwealth environmental water holdings to protect and restore the environmental assets of the Murray-Darling Basin. The Murray-Darling Basin Plan (2012) (referred to hereafter as the Basin Plan) further requires that the holdings must be managed in a way that is consistent with the Basin Plan’s Environmental Watering Plan. The Water Act 2007 and the Basin Plan also impose obligations to report on the contribution of Commonwealth environmental water to the environmental objectives of the Basin Plan. Monitoring and evaluation are critical to effectively and efficiently use Commonwealth environmental water, supporting the CEWH’s reporting obligations in addition to demonstrating overall effectiveness at meeting conservation objectives.
