What’s this about?

The Department of Planning and Environment has developed a draft Western regional water strategy to help manage the water needs in the Western region over the next 20 years.

The strategy is one of 12 being developed across the state. The overarching objective of regional water strategies is to ensure beneficial outcomes for a wide range of water stakeholders.

The draft Western Regional Water Strategy is being consulted on together with the amendments to the Barwon–Darling Water Sharing Plan and the licensing and regulation of floodplain harvesting in the region.
