Environmental Flow Assessments Reports

​​Sustaining Riverine Characteristics and Environmental Values

The reports listed below document environment flow assessments that have been undertaken for several rivers in Tasmania. These assessments have used a variety of methods to derive environmental flows, ranging from desktop studies that have focused on hydrology to comprehensive field-based assessments which have employed the most appropriate methods available at the time of the assessment. In many instances, other studies which support the environmental flows assessments have been conducted in catchments (e.g. studies of hydrology, water quality, river condition, etc.) and copies of these reports are also available as complementary reports.


The following reports provide information about the recommended environmental flows for several Tasmanian rivers. If you experience difficulty downloading any of these reports, please contact the Contact Officer below.
