Guidelines for reporting breaches of water laws
NRAR has written guidelines on reporting an alleged breach of water laws so those reporting have a clear idea of the process. The guidelines for reporting alleged breaches of the Water Management Act 2000 and Water Act 1912 cover:
- how to report alleged breaches of the water laws to NRAR
- the most common offence types
- what information you will need to provide to us
- what happens next when you report an alleged breach
- how we respond to reports of alleged breaches.
Guidelines for controlled activities on waterfront land - riparian corridors
Activities or works on waterfront land need to be approved by NRAR before they are begun, to minimise any harm that could be caused to the waterfront or waterway. Works on waterfront land are called controlled activities and you will need to apply for a controlled activity approval.
NRAR’s Guidelines for controlled activities on waterfront land – riparian corridors outline the rules for undertaking controlled activities, and help you apply for approval.
