Water Reform Action Plan

Topic: Regulation

The Department of Industry is seeking feedback on the consultation papers that will help shape water reform legislation.

Water Reform Consultation

What's this about?

The NSW Government has released the Water Reform Action Plan, which will deliver on the state’s responsibility to ensure we have an equitable and transparent approach to the management of water for current and future generations. 

Water is one of the most important natural assets in NSW. The community, business and the environment all rely on water to survive and prosper.

In December 2017, the NSW Government released the Water Reform Action Plan in response to the independent investigation into NSW water management and compliance, conducted by Ken Matthews AO (the Matthews Report) and the Murray-Darling Basin Water Compliance Review.

As part of the development process for the water reforms being introduced, the NSW Government has released consultation papers for community input on the following four topics:

  • Better Management of Environmental Water
  • Water Take Measurement and Metering
  • Transparency Measures
  • Floodplain Harvesting Policy.
