What we do

Work with NRAR

Water brings communities together; keeps industries moving and sustains life. It has significant cultural and environmental value as well as an estimated market value of more than $29 billion in NSW. When it's taken unlawfully, we lose more than just the water.

We enforce the NSW water laws so it is fair for all those who do right thing. We also offer guidance and education to help and encourage water users to comply.

We strive to be an efficient and effective regulator that celebrates and reflects the diversity of the community we serve.

Working with NRAR provides a chance to make a difference. You'll work with a group of passionate and likeminded people to protect our water.

Water is for everyone; help us protect it.

The NRAR Way

At NRAR, we model our behaviour around six core values or 'The NRAR Way'.

Our workplace strives to be kind, inclusive, daring, creative, collaborative and to always act with integrity.
