ACCC water market report submissions deadline extended

By Rodney Woods

The deadline for submissions in response to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's Murray-Darling Basin water markets interim report has been extended to October 30.

Submissions originally closed on August 28, but were pushed back to give interested parties time to respond after the release of the report was delayed by a month, from May 31 to June 30.

The interim report revealed Murray-Darling Basin water markets were flawed and increasingly affected by poor governance and a lack of transparency.

The final report is expected to be handed down in November.
