Draft Integrated Water Management Policy and Strategy
PUBLIC EXHIBITION

Wollondilly Shire contains much of Sydney’s drinking water catchment, and is rich in natural heritage including unspoiled creeks and rivers.

We are also experiencing growth, which will impact water quality and supply, biodiversity, recreation and climate resilience. With this in mind, it is increasingly important to proactively manage and protect our waterways and water sources into the future.

The Integrated Water Management Policy and Strategy aim to drive smarter water management outcomes including:

  • protecting the health of the aquatic ecosystems
  • adding value to biodiversity, recreation, liveability, climate resilience and flood management
  • minimising the long term resource and cost burdens on Council, the community and other stakeholders
  • promoting water conservation and reuse.

Last year, we asked what was most important to you about our local waterways and water supply. Thanks to those of you who shared your thoughts. We incorporated that feedback as well as input from key stakeholders such as Sydney Water, the Environment Protection Authority, and the former Office of Environment and Heritage (now incorporated into the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment) to develop the Integrated Water Management Policy and Strategy.

We now invite you to view our Policy and Strategy, and share your thoughts.
