Information sessions: drought outlook and water availability

How you can get involved

The department and WaterNSW held public drop in sessions in five regional locations in early February 2019. The locations were in key drought impacted regions.

These sessions provided an update on the water availability outlook and proposed measures to help manage our river systems if the dry conditions persist.

Details of what was heard at these public sessions are available.

The presentation slides from the NSW Department of Industry – Water sessions are now available. A video recording of the presentation slides for each of the river systems, as well as other drought information, can be accessed from the WaterNSW website via the links in the table below.
