NRAR progress report for 2019-20

Annual NRAR progress report 2019-20

Communities across NSW have said they want an effective compliance regime for water regulation.

NRAR’s 2019-20 progress report breaks down our achievements as a best-practice regulator in a year that will long be remembered for the convergence of extreme drought, devastating bushfires, floods, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite these challenges, the past year has seen NRAR build on the solid foundation laid in our first year as the state’s water regulator. We’re incredibly proud of what we have achieved this year however, there is no room for complacency as we continue to consider what comes next for us and the state of water in NSW.
