Environmental watering in the Barwon-Darling catchment, NSW 2012-13

Status

30 June 2013: This action has been completed.

About the watering

The Commonwealth environmental water used for this action contributed to protecting and restoring water-dependent ecosystems by supporting:

  • more naturally variable flow regimes
  • ecological processes dependent on hydrologic connectivity (i) longitudinally along watercourses; and (ii) laterally between watercourses and their floodplains (and associated wetlands).

This watering action was made possible by the collaboration of a wide range of stakeholders including the State Water Corporation, NSW Office of Water, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, local water users and landholders.
