Oolloo Draft WAP

The Oolloo Dolostone Aquifer is the uppermost formation of the Daly groundwater basin and occurs just north of the Douglas and Daly River confluence and extends south-east to beyond the Katherine River.  This aquifer currently provides reliable, good quality water supply for agricultural production and maintains ecosystem health by contributing to base flows in the Daly River. 

Development of a water allocation plan commenced in 2008 and is in draft form.  The plan aims to ensure continued economic growth and ongoing health of the Daly River.
