Women in Water

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a day to acknowledge the important contributions women make in our lives and the world. This year, The Natural Resources Access Regulator (NRAR) celebrates women who work in the NSW water sector.

As the independent water regulator for NSW, NRAR is responsible for fairly, transparently and efficiently monitoring, managing and regulating our water. On this important day, we want to acknowledge the important work of women in the water sector. To help raise awareness, NRAR has profiled influential women in the water sector.
