Communities will be at the heart of the project. Water Infrastructure NSW is committed to working in partnership to deliver outcomes with broad community support.
We are committed to working in collaboration with the community. We will provide numerous opportunities for local communities and stakeholders to have their say throughout the development and delivery phases of the project.
Upcoming engagement opportunities will be listed on this webpage and on our stakeholder engagement page.
Water Infrastructure NSW will work with local landholders, First Nations and communities to:
- progress several smaller infrastructure projects including, addressing inundation extent and resolving issues around several instream structures
- meet the engagement and information needs of stakeholders
- develop opportunities for ongoing local involvement through citizen science projects
- develop a pathway forward through collaboration to achieve enhanced ecological and cultural outcomes.
Engagement with First Nations people
We recognise and acknowledge the unique relationship and deep Connection to Country that First Nations people have as the Traditional Owners and First Peoples of Australia.
The wisdom and experience of First Nations communities will play a critical role in delivering the project.
We have a dedicated engagement team who will guide our engagement with these communities, and we look forward to working with them to deliver real, tangible and widely accepted outcomes.
