Water resource plan areas - Queensland


This dataset and its metadata statement were supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and are presented here as originally supplied.

Dataset WM1127 contains all the water resource plan (WRP) areas in Queensland that are in force in legislation currently, except for the Great Artesian Basin (GAB) WRP area (dataset WM0702). (For more information see http://www.dnrm.qld.gov.au/water/catchments-planning ). WM1127

replaced WM0924v2 due to the "Water Resource (Burnett Basin) Plan 2014" (Burnett 2014 WRP) coming into force (mapping accuracy improvements were applied for part of the Burnett WRP area).
