Abstract
This water allocation plan provided continuity of water management and regulation while a review and revision of the 2018-2021 plan is undertaken with advice from the Western Davenport Ti Tree Water Advisory Committee, Aboriginal people, industry and the wider community, with a view to declaring a new water allocation plan by December 2022. The WDWAP applies to the Western Davenport Water Control District (the District), which covers an area of almost 24,500 square kilometres located approximately 150 kilometres south of Tennant Creek. Its purpose is to ensure that water resources are managed in a way that protects and maintains environmental and cultural values while allowing water to be sustainably used for productive consumptive beneficial uses.
