Progress and outcomes

Tweed River - NRAR web image

We continue to deliver a fair, transparent, enforceable water law compliance system. It protects our waterways and prevents water theft. We achieve this through targeted investigations, monitoring and auditing.

We publish an annual progress report. It keeps water users up to date on our activities and achievements. We also publish quarterly compliance reports. They detail the areas we have inspected and the actions we have taken.

We also use reports by experts on the issues affecting the NSW water sector. We use these reports to plan activities. These reports are publicly available. They offer water users insight into why we prioritise certain activities.
