Introduction

A Water Allocation Plan for the Oolloo Dolostone Aquifer will define the rules for the sharing and allocation of water for the next 10 years and is being developed in consultation with the Oolloo Water Advisory Committee. A draft plan was prepared in 2012 following consultation through public meetings, requests for public comment, and engagement with the Daly River Management Advisory Committee and the Daly River Aboriginal Reference Group. Research projects investigating the hydrology, hydrogeology and the social, cultural and economic values of water in the Daly River catchment were in progress throughout this period. These activities and the data, information and knowledge developed during this time establish a strong foundation from which to continue the development of the Water Allocation Plan for the Oolloo Dolostone Aquifer.
