Total feedback submissions

We are conducting an end-of-term review of WaterNSW’s operating licence 2022-2024 which will expire on 30 June 2024. We will recommend a new operating licence for WaterNSW, to come into effect on 1 July 2024. This review will inform our final recommendations.

In December 2023, we published our draft licence and associated discussion paper for your comment.

On 9 February 2024, we published a cost-benefit analysis report on the obligations under our proposed draft licence and a draft reporting manual for your consideration and comment. We have prepared an information paper outlining the key changes to the reporting manual and any changes to the proposed licence released in December 2023.

On 20 February 2024, we held a public hearing for our stakeholders to provide verbal feedback on our draft licence recommendations. We will consider the feedback in our final recommendation to the Minister. The transcript is available here.

We encourage you to make a written submission on the draft licence package:

  • You can make a submission on the draft operating licence, the 14 December discussion paper, the cost benefit analysis, and the 9 February information paper via the Have Your Say link on the timeline above (under the 14 December Discussion Paper). Submissions on these documents are due to us by 8 March.
  • You can make a submission on the draft reporting manual via the Have your Say link on the timeline above under the draft reporting manual. Submissions on the draft reporting manual are due by 22 March.
