Discover the clearest source of water information in NSW

Welcome to WaterInsights! WaterInsights has been developed based on direct feedback from our customers, stakeholders and local communities, providing easy access to everything you want to know about water resources and water management, all in one place.

WaterInsights covers 760 water sources across NSW. The interactive map allows you to go to your area of interest, giving you access to a myriad of information all on one page.

Along with all the features WaterInsights itself has to offer, it also has direct links to all DPIE Water Sharing Plans, the Access Licence Register, the Water Register and iWas.

Ultimately, WaterInsights was developed to be a transparent webtool to provide meaningful and up to date information to support our customers and communities in better understanding water management in NSW.
