Central Brisbane River

  • Central Brisbane River

The Central Brisbane River water supply scheme was established in 1980 to enable irrigation of up to 1,000ha around the Brisbane River. 

The scheme (also known as the Mid-Brisbane Zone) has 136 bulk customers, including 131 irrigators holding 6,771ML of medium priority water access entitlements.

The Scheme is regulated under the Moreton Resource Operations Plan (ROP) which was issued in December 2009. The Moreton ROP defines water sharing rules based on the combined usable volumes of both Wivenhoe Dam and Somerset Dam.
