NSW Environment, Energy and Science Group
NSW Environment, Energy and Science (EES) Group manages environmental water within NSW, including planned environmental water allocations made under water sharing plans. Environmental water supports rivers, wetlands and floodplain health for regional communities and the plants and animals that live there.
Another important role is collaborating with the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder on the management of environmental water held by the Commonwealth Government. The agency also convenes and supports Environmental Water Advisory Groups to inform environmental water priorities and planning.
The EES Group also has a significant role in the development of long-term water plans, floodplain management plans and water sharing plans.
