The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from multiple source datasets. The source datasets are identified in the Lineage field in this metadata statement. The processes undertaken to produce this derived dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement.
The difference between NSW Office of Water GW licences - North and South Sydney v2 and v3 is that an additional column has been added, 'Asset Class' that aggregates the purpose of the licence into the set classes for the Asset Database. Also the 'Completed_Depth' has been added, which is the total depth of the groundwater bore. These columns were added for the purpose of the Asset Register.
The aim of this dataset was to be able to map each groundwater works with the volumetric entitlement without double counting the volume and to aggregate/ disaggregate the data depending on the final use.
This has not been clipped to the North and South Sydney PAEs, therefore the number of economic assets/ relevant licences will drastically reduce once this occurs.
The North and South Sydney groundwater licences includes an extract of all licences that fell within the data management acquisition area as provided by BA to NSW Office of Water.
The difference between NSW Office of Water GW licences - North and South Sydney v2 and v3 is that an additional column has been added, 'Asset Class' that aggregates the purpose of the licence into the set classes for the Asset Database.
Where purpose = domestic; or domestic & stock; or stock then it was classed as 'basic water right'. Where it is listed as both a domestic/stock and a licensed use such as irrigation, it was classed as a 'water access right.' All other take and use were classed as a 'water access right'. Where purpose = drainage, waste disposal, groundwater remediation, experimental research, null, conveyancying, test bore - these were not given an asset class. Monitoring bores were classed as 'Water supply and monitoring infrastructure'
Depth has also been included which is the completed depth of the bore.
