Information sessions: drought outlook and water availability
The department and WaterNSW held a series of public sessions in May and June 2019 in drought impacted regions.
These sessions provided an update on water availability, groundwater and the proposed measures to help manage our river systems if dry conditions persist. Read the What we heard and the Critical Water Advisory Panel Communique that followed from these drought information sessions.
