To manage the complexity of the Namoi Water Resource Plan Area, the Namoi Long-Term Water Plan (LTWP) has been divided into 36 planning units (PU). For each PU the following local-scale information is provided:
- The location of some key environmental assets identified as part of plan’s development.
- The ecological values, including native fish, waterbird species, native vegetation communities and cultural water-dependent assets that occur within the PUs priority environmental assets.
- For regulated PUs, and a few unregulated PUs, the environmental water requirements to support ecological values and objectives at representative gauges in the PU
- For unregulated PUs, an evaluation of the impact of water resource development on local hydrology and recommended management strategies for mitigating these changes to meet LTWP objectives and targets.
