Water is the lifeblood of our agricultural sector. When water is taken outside of the NSW water rules our farmers lose out. We spoke with Bruce Chapman, a farmer based in Bendemeer about what water means to him. Watch the video.
Water has a significant cultural value to Aboriginal people and communities. We spoke with Phil Duncan, NRAR’s first Indigenous board member about what water means to him and his community. Watch the video.
Know the rules
We know most people want to do the right thing, but issues arise when they don’t know the rules. That’s why we run programs to make it easier to follow the rules.
Water access licences and approvals provide water users with essential information about how much water they can take, when they can take it, what conditions apply and any other requirements they need to undertake.
Visit our Know the rules page for more information about water access licences and approvals.
