What are we working on now?
The NSW Government is currently working on the following solutions to better manage water for the environment.
New rules and regulations
We are enforcing current rules and regulations to deliver and protect environmental flows. We are also developing 20 Water Resource Plans across NSW.
Metering and building a robust compliance framework
We established the Natural Resources Access Regulator and the Water Reform Action Plan. We have also committed to the Murray-Darling Basin Compliance Compact.
Water recovery programs

Relaxing constraints in the Murray–Darling Basin
By doing so this will allow water for the environment to reach the wetlands and floodplains of some of the Basin’s key environmental assets.
Other ways to achieve environmental outcomes
Supply and efficiency measures allow Basin Plan outcomes to be achieved with less.
