The Office of the Hawkesbury-Nepean (OHN) has developed a new website to help provide a basis for improved management of the Hawkesbury-Nepean River.
The OHN was established by the NSW Government by legislation in April 2009 to improve the health of the river system, primarily through improved consultation and engagement with river communities and more effective coordination and implementation of the river management activities of State and local government agencies.
It is envisaged that this website will play an important role in the OHN fulfilling its legislative role in providing information to a broad range of stakeholders within agencies, local councils and the community on river management. Much of the initial content of the website therefore focuses on how the river is managed, including roles, responsibilities and strategies for the management of water quality, river flows, aquatic weeds and riparian lands.
The website can be accessed at www.ohn.nsw.gov.au.
