Ti Tree Water Advisory Committee

The Ti Tree Water Advisory Committee was first established in 1997 to advise the Northern Territory Controller of Water Resources on the allocation and management of ground water resources in the Ti Tree Water Control District.

Local horticultural, pastoral and community interests, as well as specialist agronomic and hydrogeological expertise were represented on the committee.

One of the main functions of the committee was to produce a Water Allocation Plan for the region.

In October 2002, the Territory Government released the Ti Tree Region Water Resource Strategy 2002.

This was the first Water Allocation Plan for the Northern Territory. The committee also assisted in the five year review of the 2002 Strategy.

In October 2009 the reviewed Ti Tree Region Water Allocation Plan was approved by the Northern Territory Government, and the Committee went into recess, in anticipation of being reconvened when community consultation commences in 2013 for the new Ti Tree Water Allocation Plan.

The new plan is due to be in place by 2014.
