Draft Far North Prescribed Wells Water Allocation Plan 2019-2029

April 17, 2020

Livestock SA recommends that the process of developing the Far North Prescribed Wells Area Water Allocation Plan 2019-2029 be paused until the South Australian Arid Lands Landscape Board is fully operational and the new Pastoral Land Management and Conservation Act is established. Following this a further period of consultation should be undertaken. Livestock SA recommends water licenses must be permanently attached to pastoral leases and expresses its concern about the science that sits behind the calculated water access entitlements along with the unease about the possibility of water meters being required. Livestock SA wishes to express its disappointment in plan consultation, with further consultation required before the plan can be implemented.
