Under the Water Management Act 2000 all water sharing plans require performance indicators to assess whether the plans have been effective in meeting their objectives. The NSW Office of Water is preparing a series of reports on ecological and socio-economic performance monitoring and evaluation in each valley. To find out more about outcomes of water sharing for valleys in New South Wales select and click on the relevant area in the map below or open the valley progress report in the table underneath.
