Alice Springs Water Allocation Plan
The Amadeus Basin Aquifers are the most significant groundwater resources within the Alice Springs region.
The Alice Springs Water Allocation Plan 2016-2026 was declared on 16 February 2016.
The plan sets out a framework for water management in the Alice Springs Water Control District and applies to all surface water and groundwater within the District.
Groundwater within this plan area is mainly used for public water supply.
In accordance with the Water Act 1992, the plan must be reviewed within five years and a new plan is to be prepared after 10 years. As such, a review is scheduled for 2021 and a new plan is to be prepared by 2026.
For more information refer to the Alice Springs Water Advisory Committee.
