The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources conducted public consultation on the draft 2016 Lake Eyre Basin State of the Basin Condition Assessment report from 22 May 2017 to 30 June 2017.
The draft report identifies the status of the hydrology, water quality, fish and waterbirds of the Lake Eyre Basin and identifies current and emerging pressures and threats to the water resources and riverine ecosystems of the Lake Eyre Basin.
The emerging threats and pressures section of the draft report identifies water resource use and development, infrastructure development, land and water degradation, mining and petroleum activities, tourism and recreation, invasive species and climate change as the key threats and pressures facing the Lake Eyre Basin’s water resources and riverine ecosystems.
Feedback provided during the consultation process will be used in the finalisation of the 2016 State of the Basin Condition Assessment report.
The final State of the 2016 Basin Condition Assessment report will be published on the Lake Eyre Basin website at
