The department has developed water quality management plans for each water resource plan area in NSW. Simply select the water resource plan by region which takes you to the main page for that plan. Within the ‘draft plan’ you will find an appendix titled ‘… water quality management plan’. These plans provide a framework to protect, enhance or restore water quality that is ‘fit for purpose’ for a range of uses. These plans consider the needs of all water users.

Technical reports for water quality and salinity have been prepared for each plan area.
