Information sessions: drought outlook and water availability

The department, together with WaterNSW, will be holding public information sessions via webinar during May and June 2020 for Inland Valleys and the Hunter Valley. The sessions will provide an update on the water availability outlook, climatic trends, system flows and storages levels. Lessons learnt from the current drought and the impacts of drought on groundwater will be discussed, as well as ongoing support available for communities. Water availability including prospects for allocations for the new water year starting July 1 2020 will also be discussed.

Presentations can be viewed live on the below dates and a recording will be later available on the website. Attendees are encouraged to submit questions via the registration page, and there will also be a live chat box available to ask questions during the webinars.
