Licences and approvals

Water access licences and approvals provide water users with essential information about how much water they can take, when they can take it, what conditions apply and any other requirements they need to follow.

This video shows how to find a water access licence and approval on the NSW Water Register located on the WaterNSW website. The water access licence and conditions fact sheet explains the specific allocations, requirements and conditions relating to water take.
