Strategic Aboriginal water reserves
This page has information about Aboriginal water reserves in water allocation plans in the Northern Territory (NT).
In 2017, the Northern Territory Government released a policy framework for strategic Aboriginal water reserves.
Aboriginal water reserves exist in water allocation plans as a sub-class of some beneficial use categories.
They are determined by the proportion of eligible Aboriginal land with direct physical access to water.
Aboriginal water reserves are a reserved volume of water for use, use in partnership or trade.
The framework sets out how the reserves can be applied to current and new water allocation plans.
