Consultation has concluded

Update June 2023: Consultation has concluded. The final Territory Water Plan has been released.

The Territory Water Plan aims to deliver water security for all Territorians, now and into the future.

Water security for the Northern Territory is defined as having an acceptable quantity and quality of water for people, economic opportunities, cultural and environmental flows. The plan aims to strengthen water governance in the Territory by coordinating water management functions across NT Government in the areas of water resource management, services, utilities, policy, legislation, regulation and use.

The draft plan was released for public consultation in October 2022.

Preliminary consultation occurred in late 2021 and early 2022 with the Northern Territory Strategic Water Plan - Directions Paper.
