Victorian Groundwater Management Areas

Abstract

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

This dataset represents Victoria's Groundwater Management Areas (GMAs).

Where groundwater has been intensively developed in Victoria, or has the potential to be developed, Groundwater Management Areas (GMAs) are established and the Permissible Consumptive Volume (PCV) is progressively set. Monitoring of the groundwater resource in these areas is undertaken by the Department of Sustainability and Environment through the State Groundwater Monitoring Network. Water levels and the amount of water allocated to groundwater users in the areas are closely monitored.

Dataset History

This dataset has been derived by DEPI's Groundwater and Licensing Branch (GLiB) and the Rural Water Corporations.
