Dataset: Surface Water SDL Resource Units


The surface water sustainable diversion limit (SDL) resource unit dataset defines the boundary of 29 surface water SDL areas in the Basin Plan 2012.The SDLs represent the maximum long-term average quantities of water that can be taken for consumption in any one year, i.e. the long-term average annual limit.
An SDL will be set for all diversions in each of the 29 surface-water SDL areas that have been established for the Basin Plan.
Some areas have been excluded from Basin water resources by regulation.
