Environmental water was provided to the Gwydir Wetlands to support the ongoing restoration of native wetland plant communities and maintain habitat for native animals.

The watering action occurred over summer which was in keeping with the natural seasonality of river flows and the water needs of environmental assets in the Gwydir catchment.

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