RDA NT actively participates in the Howard Water Allocation Plan development
The Howard region includes several high population suburbs in Darwin’s rural area, as well as large horticultural businesses. In this area domestic bores, irrigation bores and bores used for public water supply place considerable pressure on the aquifer. It is broadly accepted that the aquifer is under stress, water allocation planning is the first step towards addressing this known risk.
