What’s this about?

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

A long term regional water strategy will help guide how the NSW Government can manage challenges faced in the Border Rivers region.  

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) is identifying actions that can address these challenges to support a liveable and prosperous Border Rivers region.

The draft Border Rivers Regional Water Strategy has been prepared in consultation with local councils and Aboriginal communities.

DPIE would like to hear any information that could help assess the benefits or disadvantages presented in the draft strategy. 

Have your say

There are a number of ways you can provide feedback below. 

Community meetings
These sessions will provide an overview of the Border Rivers Regional Water Strategy, climate data modelling approach, a long list of draft options and the submission process. These sessions will also be held jointly with the healthy floodplains project.

Community meetings for Aboriginal communities
Public information sessions facilitated by independent Aboriginal facilitators will be held for interested Aboriginal people to provide an overview of the regional water strategies program. This will cover opportunities, challenges, engagement with Aboriginal people, what DPIE have heard and draft options.

If you can't attend the community meetings, you can book a one-on-one phone call.  Visit the consultation page for more information.

Have your say by Monday 30 November 2020.
