Groundwater Economic Assets Gippsland 20150427v02


The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme. This dataset was derived from multiple datasets. You can find a link to the parent datasets in the Lineage Field in this metadata statement. The History Field in this metadata statement describes how this dataset was derived.

This dataset was created to represent Licenced Water Entitlements in Gippsland PAE geolocated to groundwater bores as volume per works.

The records in the dataset have been classified into "Basic Water Right" or "Water Access Right".


This is an intermediate dataset that has been created to represent Groundwater Economic Elements spatially in the Gippsland PAE to feed into the Gippsland Asset database.

Dataset History

All Bores from the NGIS Victorian Extract (fc6dbf39-d786-4412-b631-04695db4cc90) within the Gippsland PAE were selected by using the "Select by Location" function in ArcGIS.

This resulted in 31,202 Bores in the Gippsland PAE.

Note 3,477 bores are FTYPE unknown.

An Extract of Victorian GW Licences with entitlement volume (a410fbcc-7c3d-486a-87c4-a5bb88fb489f) were joined to NGIS Gippsland bores by Licence.

Note Volume had already been distributed to works by DEPI in this file

Note total entitlement volume for licences in Gippsland PAE = 82,015 ML/YR

Please note this dataset does not include Mining entitlement volumes

Non functioning bores were removed from the file:

Delete STATUS = Abandoned or Decomissioned

Status categories available = 'DCM', 'PRP', 'UNK', 'USE'

Select where 'Status' = 'DCM (212 records)

Delete where status = 'DCM'

Note status = 'UNK' = (1,503 records)

Note, a small proportion of records contained volume but were not active and these were removed from the dataset.

Classification for these elements are as follows based on the Asset and Receptor Guide v18:
