Pilot National Water Account
The Pilot National Water Account demonstrates the breadth of information proposed for the National Water Account. It contains demonstration water accounting reports for the Murray-Darling Basin, and the Onkaparinga, Murrumbidgee and Namoi-Peel catchments.
The Pilot National Water Account tests a range of methods and processes necessary for the production of future National Water Accounts. It was published to prompt comment and feedback from potential users. While it is based on data and conditions pertaining to the 2007–08 reporting year, it is not an authoritative account and should not be used to make inferences about the status of the nation's water resources at that time or since.
