Groundwater Economic Assets GLO 20150326


This dataset was derived from groundwater data provided by the NSW Office of Water. You can find a link to the source dataset in the Lineage Field in this metadata statement. The History Field in this metadata statement describes how this dataset was derived.

This dataset represents the best available Groundwater entitlement data available for the Gloucester PAE at the time of Writing. 26/03/2015

This data has been created where possible to assign Groundwater volume entitlement information from the NSW office of Water licencing systems where possible to a location in the Gloucester PAE.

Please note licencing information in NSW can be difficult to assign to a location. If a licence is in the process of being traded it may not be tied to a location at the time of data extraction hence it is also difficult to reproduce exact figures to match previous or published sources.

The data included here is primarily from a prepackaged extract from the NSW Office of Water of their definition of the Glouster region. An overlay of their bore data shows that this area would represent most of the allocation activity in the BA Glouster PAE. This data has also been cross checked with NSW Office of Water fact sheets.

Dataset History

This data was primarily created from a prepackaged extract from the NSW Office of Water for their definition of the Glouster region. (date)

The primary file "Gloucester_Basin_Licensed_Bores.csv" included a works number which could be joined to an extract of the National Groundwater Information system (NSW update, Nov 2014 - include GUID).

Tables with volume were then joined by licence number and volume allocated per works (bore in this case).

As significant volumes did not join to a bore other information was sourced to join these to a location.

The following two data sources provided information to join volumes to a location in the area.

1) Geoscience Mining locations - The centroid of the min property was used to assign volume to

2) Publication listing the other Industry agriculture bores (Water Management Plan for the Tiedman

Irrigation Program - Gloucester, May 2012) - A property number for the licences without locations were found here and these were identified from the NSW Cadastre website:http://maps.six.nsw.gov.au/

3) Water Sharing Plans, GMU Feb, 2015
