NRAR attends Tocal, Riverina and Norco Primex field days

first_imgNRAR attends Tocal, Riverina and Norco Primex field days Throughout April and May, officers from the Natural Resources Access Regulator (NRAR) will attend the Tocal, Riverina and Norco Primex field days to speak to the community about the NSW water rules.Tim Gilbert, NRAR’s Director of Regulatory Capability & Coordination, says the field days are an excellent opportunity for the regulator to talk directly with the water community about its operations.“At all three field days, we will have NRAR staff onsite to talk to attendees about our approach to water compliance. We have ‘boots-on-the-ground’ and ‘eyes-in-the-sky’ to ensure that water is used lawfully,” Mr Gilbert said.“Water is our most precious natural resource. We can only protect it when we all follow the rules.”NRAR’s staff will also discuss the regulator’s Know the Rules campaign, which encourages water users to learn about the state’s water laws. The first video in this campaign encourages water users to understand the conditions of their water licences and approvals.The field days will focus on other important topics including metering, harvestable rights, controlled activities, logbooks and floodworks.“We will be on the ground to listen to feedback from the community. It’s an opportunity for them to tell us what other tools or resources they would like to see and what we can do to make it easier for them to understand and follow the rules.”Staff will demonstrate the suite of e-tools available to water users and provide fact sheets and advice to help water users carry out self-assessments of their operations.NRAR’s staff will be at Tocal Field Days 30 April – 2 May, Riverina Field Days on 14 and 15 May, and at Norco Primex Field Days between 20 – 22 MayTo see the work NRAR does, go to its public register on the NRAR website industry.nsw.gov.au/nrar.

Media ownership in Australia is one of the most concentrated in the world (Learn more). Since the trend of consolidation is and has historically been upward, fewer and fewer individuals or organizations control increasing shares of the mass media in our country. According to independent assessment, about 98% of the media sector is held by three conglomerates. This tendency is not only totally unacceptable, but also to a degree frightening).
