Attention: NSW Caretaker Period has commenced
The caretaker period for the NSW Election commenced on 3 March 2023. Accordingly, no ministerial press releases or related information issued by the Government from this date will be available in this website. For copies of recently issued ministerial press releases of information on the election policies of any political party, as they relate to the department/agency or its portfolio area, please go directly to the website of the relevant political party.
The Hunter region is bordered in the north-west by the Liverpool Ranges which separate it from the Namoi catchment, and on the west by the Great Dividing Range, which separates it from the Macquarie River catchment. It covers an area over 20,000km2 and extends further inland than any other coastal region of NSW. It is the traditional lands of the Kamilaroi, Geawegal and Wonnarua people.
The water sharing plans that apply to the surface water and groundwater resources of the Hunter region are listed below.
This is an informal compilation of the water sharing plan, including approved plan amendments. A link to the updated plan on the NSW legislation website will be provided once the plan is available under the ‘in force’ section of the website.
