Water management during drought.

Drought response

Keeping our customers and communities informed.

The impact of drought is severe. In times of drought, WaterNSW works collaboratively with other NSW Government water authorities to respond appropriately and to manage water to meet critical human need as a priority.

As the dam, storage and river operator, in times of drought, WaterNSW has a key role to provide accurate, up-to-date information and data to our customers, local communities and other stakeholders.

NSW storage levels are always available and more detailed information is available via WaterInsights. In times of drought we will supplement this information with drought reports and seasonal outlooks.
