Dataset: CLM - Bore allocations QLD v02



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 contains the allocation data for the Queensland part of the Clarence-Moreton Basin. The data were organized by geological formations. The data were sourced from the QLD state allocation database (GUID = 68bbd3fb-6e2a-4088-a3dd-55cc44c2f0d6). The data indicate that the Woogaroo Subgroup is being pumped most intensively. However, most bores in other major aquifers, such as the alluvium and Grafton Formation, have an allocation entry of zero in the state database. For example, 653 of 702 alluvial bores are assigned an allocation of zero in the database. One main reason for this is that no allocation is planned for most domestic and stock bores because they belong to the basic water right licence. Thus, this summary may not reflect the reality. Note that 'nominal entitlement per water year' was used instead of 'allocation' in the Queensland database. The rows with a zero entry have been removed in this version in order to create an allocation distribution map.

Dataset History

This dataset was compiled through the following process:

  1. Filter the data using the spatial extent of the Clarence-Moreton Basin.

  2. Organize records by aquifers.

  3. Remove the records with zero and empty entries.
