Draft NSW Namoi Alluvium Water Resource Plan

Have your say

The draft Namoi Alluvium Water Resource Plan is currently on public exhibition. This plan outlines how New South Wales will meet the requirements of the Basin Plan in the NSW Namoi Alluvium Water Resource Plan Area. A water resource plan must comply with the requirements of Chapter 10 of the Basin Plan 2012 for it to be accredited under Division 2 of Part 2 of the Commonwealth Water Act 2007.

As part of developing this water resource plan, a new water sharing plan will be made for this area. The new draft water resource plan, and draft water sharing plan, is open for feedback until Saturday, 20 July 2019.

Water sharing plans continue to be the legal instrument for managing water resources in NSW. Water resource plans are put in place to implement the Commonwealth Basin Plan 2012.
