OEH also cooperates with the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder on the management of environmental water held by the Australian Government. For the purposes of this document, allocated environmental water includes:

  • planned environmental water allowances (or environmental contingency allowances) accrued through the regulated river water sharing plans – NOW has delegated the use of this water to OEH
  • adaptive environmental water licences arising from the purchase of entitlements by governments and the recovery of water savings from infrastructure projects. The purchase of entitlements by the NSW Government is now complete.
