Rural Floodplain Management:
DECCW prepares Floodplain Management Plans for rural areas designated under Part 8 of the Water Act 1912
or under the regulations of the Water Management Act 2000 to ensure development of the floodplain provides
for flow of floodwaters within paths identified in the plan. These statutory plans form the basis of assessing
flood control work approvals. Licensing responsibilities rest with the NSW Office of Water.

Threatened Species Information Fact Sheets (all under review):
• Alternation to natural flows as a key threatening process – an overview (July 2002)
• Bushrock removal – a key threatening process (October 1999)
• Clearing of native vegetation as a key threatening process – an overview (September 2001)
• Removal of dead wood as a key threatening process – an overview (December 2003)
Threat abatement plans:
Once the NSW Scientific Committee lists a key threatening process ie. a process that threatens or could threaten,
the survival or evolutionary development of species, populations or ecological communities, DECCW will
prepare a threat abatement plan. Draft and final threat abatement plans can be found on the website
http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/threatenedspecies/ThreatAbatementPlans.htm
Threatened species recovery plans:
Once a species, population or ecological community has been listed as threatened, DECCW may draw up a
recovery plan. This plan is designed to return the species, population or ecological community to a point where
their survival is viable in nature and outline the actions that government departments and other organisations
have agreed upon to help the recovery of the species. Recovery plans must generally be considered before
development applications can go ahead. Draft and final recovery plans can be found on the website
http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/threatenedspecies/RecoveryPlans.htm.
Water and Energy Programs:
The following policy documents held by the Department can be made available for inspection or purchase.

bulletins which can be found on the Department of Health website at http://www.health.nsw.gov.au/policies/
index.html
Please note the following definitions:
Guideline (GE)
A systematically developed statement to assist implementation of policy. Clinical guidelines are based on the
best available scientific evidence and provide formal conclusion or recommendations about appropriate and
necessary care for specific types of patients. While policies usually require clinical or non-clinical guidelines,
not all clinical guidelines require a policy base. Clinical guidelines that communicate best practice can be used
to encourage improvements while not officially requiring a change in behaviour through adoption as policy.
Clinical Pathway
A plan that details optimal sequencing and timing of interventions by health care staff for a particular diagnosis
or procedure. Clinical pathways are developed by multi-disciplinary teams for a defined patient population
using evidence-based medicine (literature review and current research information) current practice data and
caregiver knowledge. The actual status of a patient is compared to that anticipated by the relevant pathway.
Variations are identified and remedial action taken as appropriate. A clinical pathway may be specified in a
clinical guideline.

Policy (PO)
A policy is defined as a directive or decision that requires compliance or formal guidance. Legislation,
professional codes, supplier guidance or state/local precedent may generate the need for a policy to be developed.
The policy tells you what the directive or decision is, and why.
Procedure (PR)
A set of documented instructions on the approved and recommended steps for a particular act or sequent of
acts (ACHS). Procedures direct the practical implementation of a policy and must have a secure evidence base
and consistent application. Procedures tell you how.
