Historical data

Over the period 1966-1974 the NSW Government undertook investigations and prepared reports into the water resources of 32 valleys in NSW, considering climate, streamflow, land use, demands within the valley, and opportunities to provide better access to water. The results of these investigations were documented in a series of 28 published reports which include analysis of the available climate and flow data.

We have been collating copies of these reports for historical interest, and currently have 24 available (we will provide the outstanding four reports when we are able to access copies of these). The reports are naturally a product of their time. Water resource management in NSW has continued to evolve since that time, and our current Regional Water Strategies reflect a more contemporary approach, with far greater consideration of environmental and social issues.
