Usage dashboard

The Usage dashboard is an initiative by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment to bring greater transparency to the water market participants in relation to information on water usage and water accounts by licence holders.

The Usage dashboard displays metered water usage for all regulated rivers, Barwon-Darling River (unregulated river) and Major Alluvial groundwater sources.

Cautionary note:  We are not able to properly update this dashboard due to Covid-19 lockdown. Please note that the Water Year labelling on the first tab of dashboard is incorrect (it should be '2021-2022' instead of '2020-2021').

Other information dashboards that the department has published can be found here:
