Information sessions: drought outlook and water availability

How you can get involved

The department and WaterNSW are holding public drop in sessions in five regional locations in early February. The locations are in key drought impacted regions.

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

People who are interested are invited to attend a drop-in session.

The sessions will include representatives from the department, WaterNSW, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and Rural Financial Counsellors.
