DWER moves to wa.gov.au

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) is working with the Office of Digital Government to move information from their websites to WA.gov.au.

DWER are pleased to let you know that the majority of der.wa.gov.au has now moved to WA.gov.au.

A small number of webpages, including licences and works approvals, clearing permits, air quality data and air quality index will remain for now.

WA.gov.au makes it easier for you to find the information you need. It is search-based, like Google, so all you need to do is enter your query into the search bar. WA.gov.au also improves accessibility and access on different devices.

What this means for you

• If you already subscribe to DWER email updates, these will not change. You do not need to resubscribe.
• If you have bookmarks or links to DWER’s old webpages, you will be automatically redirected to the new webpages on WA.gov.au, where possible.
• Old links directly to documents will automatically take you to the DWER homepage on WA.gov.au. You can then use the search function to find the document you are looking for.
• If you link to DWER on your website, please update to our new address https://www.wa.gov.au/dwer
