Water Management (General) Regulation

Topic: Regulation

The Department of Primary Industries Water is proposing to remake the Water Management (General) Regulation 2011 and is seeking public feedback.


What's this about?

The Water Management Act 2000 establishes a framework for the sustainable management of water in NSW.

The current Water Management (General) Regulation 2011 specifies:

  • procedural and technical matters related to the administration of the Act
  • exemptions from licence and approval requirements under the Act
  • certain functions and powers of water supply authorities.

The Water Management (General) Regulation 2011 is due to lapse on 1 September 2018 under the Subordinate Legislation Act 1989.

DPI Water is proposing to remake the 2011 Regulation with proposed amendments which will:

  • clarify a number of matters relating to licensing and approval requirements, and the functions and powers of water supply authorities
  • cut red tape by creating new exemptions from approval requirements.
