Water allocation statements

Water allocation statements are issued to announce allocations for a specific water source and licence category. These statements may also be issued to provide a summary of current allocations, outlook and possible future water availability scenarios for major river valleys and systems.

When an opportunity to access a supplementary flow event occurs, the department approves such events and WaterNSW issues ‘Supplementary announcements’.

The current drought stage for each river valley is included in the statement. These range from Stage 1 (normal operations) to Stage 4 (critical drought). The drought stage is determined in accordance with the critical trigger levels outlined in the incident response guides (IRGs) developed by the department. Further information on the IRGs is available at extreme events.

Water allocation statements 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.
