How will Australian water resources law provide for the management and sharing of water resources between human uses and sustaining ecosystems?
Over the past fifteen years Australian parliaments have undertaken a national program of fundamental law reform to address these issues. The resultant state and territory legislation is the product of the most significant reforms since water resources statutes were first enacted over a century ago. The Commonwealth Parliament has entered the field of water resource management and, with the support of some state-referred legislative powers, it has enacted a framework for the national oversight of water resources management in the Murray-Darling basin in addition to other provisions with nationwide operation.
Water Resources Law is an invaluable resource for practitioners, academics, environmentalists and students and anyone interested in tracing the legal history and policy development of these reforms. The authors explain in practical terms how the new water resources legislation seeks to implement the national reform policies.
