Dams Safety NSW (DSNSW) is the State’s independent regulator, responsible for the safety of dams in NSW. Dams Safety NSW ‘declares’ those dams which have a potential to threaten downstream life or cause major property, environmental, or public welfare damage. Once a dam is declared under the Act, the dam owner must comply with the requirements of the legislation.
Established on November 1, 2019, DSNSW makes decisions on how the legislation is administered. The regulator also provides guidance to declared dam owners on how to comply.
