Dam notification areas

banner damn image

Only declared dams that Dams Safety NSW considers may be affected by mining have notification areas. Notification areas are published in the NSW State Government Gazette.

A notification area is an area that underlies or surrounds the wall of a declared dam. It is defined by straight lines joining a series of coordinates. Dams Safety NSW may declare an area of land around or near to a declared dam as a “notification area” under section 48 of the Dams Safety Act 2015.

Read more in our guideline about mining near declared dams.
