11 April 2019

A new online tool being trialled in the Murrumbidgee valley by WaterNSW that combines the latest on river flows, dam storages, water availability and weather outlook will streamline water management decisions.

The new portal – which offers offers a bird’s-eye view of the river system along with all priority information at a glance – can be viewed at https://waterinsights.waternsw.com.au/

WaterNSW CEO David Harris said one of WaterNSW’s highest priorities is to assist water customers to run their operations through the diligent management of resources and provision of timely and useful information, including allocations and trade data.

“Our objective is to provide our customers and all other water stakeholders with facts and figures around water management and our system operations so that firstly, the operation of the river system is transparent, and secondly, so that discussions around water regulation and sharing are informed by readily available facts.

“We want our website to provide all of the information needs of our customers and stakeholders in terms of how the water resource is being managed on the ground.”

The Water Insights portal features include:

  • Key decision-making graphics in one place
  • A user-friendly, interactive interface
  • The provision of more transparent water resource information
  • Frequent updates.
