The NSW Government remains committed to rolling out robust new rules for non-urban water metering to improve the standard and coverage of water meters across NSW.
Throughout July and August 2019, conducted a metering roadshow, stopping at 14 locations across regional NSW, as well as an online webinar.
At each session, representatives from the Water Renewal Taskforce and the Natural Resources Access Regulator presented on the new rules to help water users understand what they need to do to comply. Feedback was also sought on minor amendments to the Water Management (General) Regulation 2018, primarily relating to reporting requirements. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions.
More than 500 stakeholders were engaged with many water users providing valuable feedback. We are currently collating this feedback and will publish a 'What We Heard' report shortly.
