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 the Namoi region's challenges.

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

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

DPIE is seeking feedback on:

  • the opportunities and challenges you see and how you think they should be addressed
  • the options presented in the draft strategy
  • any further information that could help us to assess the benefits and disadvantages of any of the options.

Have your say

   

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

Online webinar

A live webinar will provide an overview of the regional water strategies program, regional specific opportunities, challenges and options, and a question and answer session.
