Healthy floodplains project
About the project
This project aims to reform the management of water on floodplains through the development of floodplain management plans as well as the licensing of floodplain harvesting water extractions.
Floodplain harvesting stakeholder engagement
We are currently implementing the NSW Floodplain Harvesting Policy, to ensure the effective implementation; we are holding workshop sessions across NSW.
Floodplain management plans
Are a critical part of the NSW Healthy Floodplains Project delivering a framework for coordinating the development of flood works on a whole-of-valley basis.
This policy provides a framework for licensing floodplain extractions and approving floodplain harvesting works.
Floodplain harvesting monitoring & auditing strategy
Has been developed and represents the first part of what will be a staged approach to wider floodplain regulatory initiatives over the longer term.
