WaterNSW is responsible for dam operations, water security and managing water stored in all its 42 water storages. Each valley has different water storage and supply issues in the current drought. Drought continues to impact many farmers, irrigators, and residents who are WaterNSW customers in Western NSW, Greater Sydney as well as the Hunter, Bega, and Iron Pot valleys in coastal NSW.

We are working with local councils and community stakeholders to keep them informed and to seek feedback as we navigate ever-changing drought conditions.
