Water Management Regions

​​​Water management activities are undertaken by Regional Water Management Officers across Tasmania. Each officer is responsible for a defined region, with major offices located at New Town, Prospect, Devonport and Burnie.

Licensing adminstration and support is provided by staff located at New Town.

The Department's activities in each region includes
  • Managing flows in rivers and streams
  • Provision of information on water resource matters in regional areas
  • Compliance monitoring and enforcement

Contact a Regional Water Management Officer

Each region is supported by a Regional Water Management Officer (RWMO) who can provide advice on farm dams and water allocation issues.  The RWMOs, assisted by Water Rangers, are also responsible for ensuring compliance with licensing conditions.
