Planning for 2023-24
Every year, the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder publishes a Water Management Plan. It outlines how we plan to use water for the environment across the Basin's rivers and wetlands under a range of different weather and water availability conditions at both the valley and Basin-scale.
Our plan looks at:
- how much water is expected to be available
- the seasonal rainfall outlook
- plant, animal, river and wetland health.
Every year is different.
The Commonwealth holds the following entitlement types in the Gwydir region:
- High Security
- General Security
For more information about current Commonwealth environmental water holdings in the Gwydir Region, including please refer to Environmental water holdings.
Information regarding the characteristics of entitlements and the water resource plan held in the Gwydir catchment is available at NSW Department of Planning and Environment.
