Available water determinations

A water allocation, which informs licensed water users how much water they can extract, is a type of announcement known as an available water determination (AWD). An AWD is given effect by a statutory water order. AWDs and their associated orders are issued on 1 July and periodically throughout the year.

Each order authorises WaterNSW to incrementally credit the accounts of licensed water users with the volume of water specified, and allows licensed users to then take that additional water in accordance with their account balance and license conditions.

Determinations for the current year and past six years can be accessed below. If you require historical information, browse the NSW Water Register or the water documents archive portal
