The Mid-North Coast Integrated Water Cycle Management (IWCM) Framework project aims to enhance the organisational and institutional capacity of Hastings and Greater Taree Councils to deliver economically, socially and ecologically sustainable environmental and water resource management outcomes for their local government areas. This project has been funded by the NSW Government through its Stormwater Trust and is significant because it seeks to develop, trial and test a strategic framework through extensive stakeholder engagement, research and investigation. This project offers strategic value for Councils throughout NSW as a model for integrated water cycle management. The Framework has been designed to facilitate integrated governance of water management responsibilities and provides Hastings Council and Greater Taree City Councils with comprehensive issues analysis, community profile data, water balance modeling scenarios, framework guidelines and implementation tools. This paper documents and discusses the rationale and process of the framework development, results of the water balance modeling studies and the IWCM policy, guidelines and implementation tools developed as a result of the this work
