The overall objective of this project is to develop use-related standards relevant to each requirement in Catchment Management Plans. Phase I consists of a Project Definition Study to define terms of reference for Phase II, which involves the development of userelated standards for implementation in Catchment Management Planning (CMP). The NRA is developing CMP as a multi-functional approach to the management and protection of the water environment. The objectives of Phase I are: 1. to identify all uses, current and future, of water and the water related environment within a catchment; 2. identify the environmental objectives required to protect the above uses; 3. identify and review existing standards relevant to 1. and 2. above; 4. to identify those uses where no current parameters/standards exist; and 5. formulate terms of reference for Phase II of the project.
