Marsden Jacob Associates supported the WESA review panel. The Marsden Jacob Associates report will soon be available on the Marsden Jacob Associates website.

What the review is looking at

The WESA was established under the Water Act 2007 to fund recovery of additional environmental water. It also helps to fund constraints projects under the Basin Plan 2012.

The review will consider whether allocated funds are enough to

  • reach the target of 450 gigalitres of environmental water by 2024, and
  • ease or remove constraints to delivery of environmental water by 2024.
