Water and the Law: what rights does SA have to water upstream?

Unsure about water rights? Learn about what rights SA has to water in the Murray-Darling Basin

Listen to a podcast or view the slideshare of a presentation given by Professor John Williams and Mathew Lee. The seminar entitled “Water and the Law”  assesses both the genesis and development of water law in Australia in order to provide an explanation of how we have arrived at this current water crisis. In the Advertiser the South Australian Minister for the River Murray and Water Security said, the State Governmnet will not take the New South Wales Government to the High Court to contest rights to the flood waters as any submission would fail. Read the article here. In their seminar John and Mathew explain why South Australia  has no jurisdiction over the water being injected into the Murray-Darling Basin from the floods in NSW.
