Interagency Agreement between NSW and MDBA

The MDBA and the former NSW Department of Industry (now Department of Planning and Environment) signed an agreement on 28 February 2019 relating to specified measures in anticipation of water resource plans coming into effect.

Reporting against these measures was required on 16 April 2019 (progress report) and 16 June 2019 (final report). The final reports for Surface Water and Groundwater can be found below.

A series of fact sheets have been developed to help the community provide informed feedback on the various elements of the water resource plans.
