The Tasmania Sustainable Yields Project
This project provided the most comprehensive assessment of water yield undertaken to date in Tasmania.
The CSIRO Tasmania Sustainable Yields Project (TasSY) has developed an assessment of the current and likely future extent and variability of surface water and groundwater resources in Tasmania.
Results from this project will help governments, industry and communities consider the environmental, social and economic aspects of the sustainable use and management of the precious water assets of Tasmania based on the best available information.

This project was funded by the Australian Government Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities under the Water for the Future initiative. [external link]
