Expressions of interest for unallocated water from the Western Great Artesian Basin

Expressions of interest are now closed.

Expressions of interest for the release of unallocated Great Artesian Basin groundwater from parts of the Eromanga and Adori Injune aquifer units underlying Western Queensland closed at 5pm on 30 November 2020.

We are investigating the potential for a future unallocated water release process in these areas.

Your responses will help us better understand the demand for these water resources and guide us in determining the best way to get this water into the hands of those who will make use of it. As the water accessibility and quality of these aquifers is variable, this process will also allow us to work with those who express interest to identify these requirements.

Note: Submitting an expression of interest does not automatically make you eligible for grant of a water entitlement.
