Why science at WaterNSW

Why science at WaterNSW

Science plays a critical role in helping WaterNSW make important decisions about managing our catchment areas and protecting and enhancing water quality and quantity to minimise risks to human health.

Science helps WaterNSW to:

  • identify risks to water quality and catchment health
  • investigate the factors that contribute to risks
  • develop and implement strategies to address risks
  • evaluate the effectiveness of our strategies.

Information on how WaterNSW uses science is available in our Science Strategic Plan (2010-15) at the bottom of this page.
