About the role
LLS is partnering with the Department of Planning, Industry & Environment - Water to deliver certain aspects of the Constraints Measures Program under the Sustainable Diversion Limit Adjustment Mechanism (SDLAM).

Constraints can include physical structures (e.g. low-lying bridges), river management practices and operational limits for river heights.

The LLS Water Constraints Management Team is being established to deliver components of Stage 1 of the Program for DPIE Water that will include validating and seeking feedback on current modelling with individual private landholders, private landholder negotiations with regards to impact mitigation options, delivery of signed landholder agreements and packaging up proposed on-ground works to inform Stage 2 of the Program.
