Final regional water strategies

Namoi Regional Water Strategy

A 20-year Namoi region-specific strategy to improve the security and certainty of our water resources.

About the Strategy

Secure, reliable and resilient water sources are critical to regional communities in NSW. The NSW regional water strategies set out a clear path to improve water outcomes for regional NSW. These strategies are based on the best and latest climate evidence, and offer a wide range of tools and solutions that are tailored to each of the 13 regions in NSW.

In the Namoi Regional Water Strategy, we have prioritised a series of 27 actions that can help to improve water for Aboriginal communities, towns, industry and the environment in a more variable and uncertain climate.

How the strategy was developed

To develop this strategy, the NSW Government undertook significant research, analysis and consultation with industry, communities, and water managers. The department sought input for the development of the strategy through 2 public exhibition periods, as well as a range of targeted engagement sessions.

Monitoring and reporting

The strategy is designed to respond to changing circumstances. We will undertake a formal review of the strategy at least every 5 years or in response to significant changing conditions and government priorities.

Each year, we will report on our progress in implementing the strategy actions. This will provide transparency to the community, and allow us to show what we have achieved and what we will deliver in the future.
