Overview

The NSW Government is preparing regional water strategies that will bring together the best and latest climate evidence with a wide range of tools and solutions to plan and manage the water needs of NSW over the next 20 to 40 years.

A long-term regional water strategy is being developed to guide how the NSW Government can best address regional water–related challenges to support a liveable and prosperous NSW Murray region.

We have prepared this draft strategy to continue our discussions with you about the future management of water in your community. It has been prepared in consultation with local councils and Aboriginal communities.
