Bottled water review

The NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer conducted an independent review into the impacts of the bottled water industry on groundwater resources in the Northern Rivers region of NSW.

The independent review's final report includes advice on the sustainability of groundwater extraction limits in the Northern Rivers, as well as advice on monitoring groundwater at both the regional scale and at the local scale of extraction operations.

The NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer final report in December 2019 is available on the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer website.
