NSW Government's Water Reform Action Plan
Water is one of our most valuable natural assets. The NSW Government has developed a Water Reform Action Plan to ensure that
- we deliver on our responsibility to the people of NSW
- we have an equitable and transparent approach to the management of our water for future generations.
NSW remains committed to the Murray Darling Basin Plan and ensuring it is delivered in a way that balances economic, environmental and socio-economic concerns.
