Information sessions: drought outlook and water availability

How can you get involved

The Department of Planning Industry and Environment and WaterNSW are holding a public information session in February 2020.

The session will provide an update on the water availability outlook and explain how the NSW government is managing risks of extreme events: drought and poor water quality. It will also include a discussion about proposed measures to help manage our river systems if the dry conditions persist.

The session will include representatives from the department, WaterNSW, Local Lands Services and the Rural Resilience Team.
