Draft strategy and background information
This draft NSW Water Strategy is relevant to a wide range of people and interests, including Aboriginal people, landholders who rely on rivers or aquifers for domestic and stock rights, people living on floodplains, towns and villages, the environment and licensed water users. Rivers provide important recreational opportunities—including tourism, water sports and fishing—and the well-being of regional communities depends on healthy rivers.
The draft NSW Water Strategy has been developed based on feedback we have heard during previous consultation processes, for example, on regional water strategies, water sharing plans and water resource plans, the findings and recommendations from many inquiries and reviews into water management, and the experience of the recent drought.
Now we would like to hear from you to ensure we have identified the right priorities, challenges, opportunities and actions for the future.
