As suggested by the program aim, the primary focus of RERP was the purchase of Water Access Licences (WALs) from willing sellers. Consistent with this focus, approximately $147.2 million of the overall RERP budget was spent on the purchase of WALs, or water infrastructure projects that led to water savings, for use on wetlands targeted by RERP. As a result of this investment, WALs representing over 108,000 megalitres are now being managed by the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water NSW (DECCW).
