Work to strengthen compliance and enforcement regimes in the Murray–Darling Basin continues apace, with the Murray–Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) today signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Natural Resources Access Regulator (NRAR)—the new independent regulatory body for water compliance in New South Wales.
