Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder

Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder

I was recently in Canberra talking to staff who work for the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder and discovered that as of the 30th of September this year 211 gigalitres (211 billion litres) of environmental water has been delivered to the environment so far under the Water for the Future initiative. This is quite a remarkable achievement and the water has been used to now water 29 river, floodplain and wetlands sites in New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria.
As more and more water is allocated to the environment the job of the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder gets increasingly difficult to determine the most efficient and effective way to provide water to key assets.
There are some very good documents on the DSEWPC website that give an overview of framework that the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder works under and importantly their 2010-2011 Business Plan.
