The new ‘place of take approvals’ framework will strengthen water delivery rights in declared systems and will come into effect during 2023/24 following planned consultation and communications activities.

This approach will protect irrigator’s existing rights to have water delivered during a rare shortfall event. A consistent framework will be set for all declared systems. Irrigators will also have more flexibility to manage their own delivery risk.


  • The drivers for the change.
  • What the changes are, and what they mean for water users, including for private diverters and irrigation district customers.
  • Proposed rules under the framework, including cap and trade of water delivery rights.
  • How the changes fit in the program of work to manage increasing delivery risk in the Murray.

Expert speakers:

Expert speakers are Penny Clark – Senior Manager Water Reform Legislation Oversight, and Alex Murray – Acting Manager Declared Systems Reform.  Penny and Alex are from the Water Markets and Grid branch at the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA). This team over-sees the place of take approval framework.
