It is the purpose of the NBWB to manage the groundwater system under our control in an environmentally and economically sustainable way, recognising that the economic viability of industry dependent on the resource is the essential foundation of sustainable environmental management. Recognising also that the system under our control is a modified environment, the management focus being on the development of a sustainable new balance of modified and pristine values.
These goals will be achieved through close co-operation with ratepayers, local government, government agencies and the wider community, financed on the basis of cost recovery only, while employing the best scientific knowledge available.
