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 a range of targeted engagement sessions and a round of public exhibition.
Document library and past engagement
The NSW Government has made a number of changes to improve water flowing across connected systems at important times. As part of developing the Western Regional Water Strategy we undertook significant analysis to better understand what further action we could take to improve these flows in the northern NSW Murray Darling Basin.
We now have a plan to continue this work and support communities across all of NSW. A summary of the plan to improve water flowing across connected systems at important times and evidence that sits behind it is available in the following video and powerpoint presentation (PDF, 2100.46 KB).
We will undertake further analysis and consultation to support the implementation of this plan and inform the changes that may need to be made to flow targets in water sharing plans to improve water flowing across connected catchments.
