Macquarie-Castlereagh Regional Water Strategy
The NSW Government is preparing regional water strategies that will bring together the best and latest climate evidence with a wide range of tools and solutions to plan and manage the water needs of NSW over the next 20 to 40 years.
We want to know about the opportunities and challenges you see and how you think they should be addressed. We are seeking your feedback on the options presented in the draft strategy and whether you have any further information that could help us to assess the benefits and disadvantages on any of the options.
Feedback on the draft strategy was sought from 25 September to 13 December 2020. A snapshot (JPG 880.6 KB) of the key statistics for the Macquarie-Castlereagh region is also available.
