DNRM Water Measurement Information System Extract April 2014


This dataset and its metadata statement were supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and are presented here as originally supplied.

The DNRM Water Measurement Information System Extract contains data collected from the State's Stream Gauging Station Network. This also includes an extract of water quality information. Refer to the WMG001- 3 0 Stream Gauging Station Index 2014_WMDP.pdf for the list of the historic (closed) and current (open) stream gauging stations managed by the Department of Natural Resources and Mines. Site details are also provided in DNRM_SITE_20140429.csv

Dataset History

The department operates the Stream Gauging Station Network primarily to fulfil legislative requirements under Part 3, s35 of the Water Act 2000 (Qld) to regularly measure and keep publicly available records of volume and quality of water in Queensland.

The network assesses the state's water resource availability by providing data for hydrologic analysis, operation and management activities to ensure the productive and responsible use of natural resources. The network also provides real time information to the Bureau of Meteorology to assist with flood forecasting services which are used by local authorities across Queensland to prepare for potential flood inundation.

The Stream Gauging Station Network consists of around 400 stream gauging stations across Queensland that collect height and flow information. In addition, around 170 of these sites also collect time series water quality information. The network is operated by departmental Hydrographic staff within an ISO 9001:2008 accredited quality management system. Stream flow measurements are an integral part of the production of volumetric data for stream gauging stations throughout Queensland. Hydrographic staff take measurements throughout the full range of low and flood flow conditions.
