Current areas of focus
The 2023 group – Southern Inland
NRAR is focused on ensuring compliance for the highest volume water users in the 2023 group now the compliance deadline has been reached.
We continue to work closely with WaterNSW and the Department of Planning and Environment to raise awareness about the metering rules and educate water users about their obligations in the lead up to the remaining compliance deadlines.
Monitoring and enforcing compliance amongst groups whose deadline has passed
Water users in the 2020 and 2021 groups have both had over a year since their compliance dates passed to take action and we have begun taking enforcement action for breaches of the metering rules.
- For the 2020 group, we are investigating works that are still non-compliant and taking appropriate enforcement action where necessary. Those who do not comply will face escalated enforcement action, with prosecution and stop work orders a possibility if non-compliance persists in this group of high-risk water users.
- For the 2021 group, we are continuing to conduct compliance checks across the Northern Inland. We are a firm but fair regulator. If a licence holder has faced challenges in complying by their deadline and can show evidence of their efforts to comply, we will take that into consideration.”.
