In September 2011, the environmental values (EVs) and water quality objectives (WQOs) for Fitzroy Basin waters were finalised and are now included in schedule 1 of the Environmental Protection (Water and Wetland Biodiversity) Policy – the EPP (Water and Wetland Biodiversity). This followed a process of planning and stakeholder consultation on EVs that ran from 2009 to 2011.
Scheduled 2011. Draft consultation materials (reporting, maps) were released for comment from 2017, and are now under review.
