Supply measure projects

Supply projects are improved ways to manage the Basin’s rivers to more efficiently deliver water for the environment. 

The South Australian Government has submitted a number of supply projects to the MDBA. This includes:

  • The Living Murray projects
  • Flows for the Future
  • Riverine Recovery Project: Yatco Lagoon and the Phase 1 and Phase 2 Wetlands Project
  • South Australian Riverland Floodplain Integrated Infrastructure Program (SARFIIP) Pike and Katarapko Floodplain Project
  • South East Flows Restoration Project
  • River Murray in South Australia Constraints Measure

Supporting documents for projects delivered in South Australia 

Many of the technical reports were drafts at the time of submission to the SDL Adjustment Mechanism assessment process, and after being finalised may have new titles or additional information.
