Commonwealth Environmental Water Office 2011-12 Outcomes Report

Commonwealth Environmental Water Office, 2013

About the report

This report outlines the environmental benefits that have resulted from Commonwealth environmental watering in the Murray-Darling Basin in 2011-12. The report includes case studies, which highlight the results of monitoring projects in the Murray and Murrumbidgee catchments. These show that environmental watering is achieving a broad range of benefits for the many native plant and animal communities that rely on healthy habitat within these catchments to survive.

The activities described in the report also demonstrate how the Commonwealth Environmental Water Office worked closely with stakeholders, including our delivery partners and environmental water holders, to actively manage environmental water during a year when many catchments in the Murray-Darling Basin were experiencing wet conditions.
