EWMP refers to the management by OEH of allocated environmental water. Allocated environmental water includes:

  • planned environmental water allowances (or environmental contingency allowances) accrued through the relevant regulated river water-sharing plans [http://www.water.nsw. gov.au/Water-Management/default.aspx] (The NSW Office of Water [NOW] has delegated the use of this water to OEH)
  • adaptive environmental water licences arising from both the purchase of entitlements by governments and the recovery of water through savings generated by infrastructure projects.
