The NSW Government has developed draft regional water strategies to help manage the water needs in the Murray and Murrumbidgee regions over the next 20 years.
The strategies are two of 12 being developed across the state.
From 11 April to 22 May the draft Murray and Murrumbidgee regional water strategies will be on public exhibition.
The overarching objective of regional water strategies is to ensure beneficial outcomes for a wide range of water stakeholders.
The Government will be holding public information webinars and a series of face-to-face engagement sessions across the regions to inform and seek feedback on the draft Murray and Murrumbidgee strategies.
