Groundwater observation bores in Gippsland


This dataset was supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and is presented here as originally supplied. Metadata was not provided and has been compiled by the Bioregional Assessment Programme based on known details at the time of acquisition.

This layer contains points showing the location of groundwater bores in the groundwater database that have recorded co-ordinates for the Gippsland region. The data management system includes the entry, storage and retrieval of bore hole and groundwater data in Victoria. It contains data from a range of sources, primarily from the registration of bores requiring a bore construction licence (Water Act, 1989), as well as groundwater level and groundwater chemistry data.


The layer provides source data for groundwater to the Victorian Water Resources Data Warehouse which was closed down November 2013.

This was recently replaced by WMIS: http://data.water.vic.gov.au/monitoring.htm

The latest update (Oct 2013) for this dataset is from the GMS (as all previous datasets have been). Next update will be from WMIS.

Dataset History

Description provided by www.vvg.org.au. The WMIS is the statewide repository of groundwater bore information managed by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) for the State Government Victoria. The data in the WMIS was migrated from the former Groundwater Management System (GMS) in 2013 and the current database holds groundwater information on approximately 220,000 boreholes throughout Victoria. The WMIS is also accessible directly through the DELWP groundwater portal.
