NSW Water Information


This site has been designed to incorporate a number of features to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. These features include:

  • Frames, Java applets and Flash objects are generally not used as they cannot be read by many alternative access devices; - Images and graphics carry ALT tags to assist visitors using screen readers and those with images turned off in their internet browsers;
  • Where practicable, tables have been presented so that information can be read in a linear fashion and each cell is described by its column heading;
  • Pages have been designed to be device independent (that is, users can navigate without the need of a mouse).

It is the goal of the NSW Government to ensure that this site meets accessibility standards.

This website conforms to W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). The public pages on this site meet the criteria for level A compliance with WCAG guidelines.
