This was the first time environmental water was provided to the Mallowa Wetlands. This watering action contributed to support the ongoing restoration of native wetland plant communities and maintain habitat for native animals. It 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 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, the local environmental water advisory committee and landholders.
