1.3.1 Methods

Summary

The water‑dependent asset register is a list of water‑dependent assets identified for use in the bioregional assessment (BA) of the Gloucester subregion. This section details the specific application to the Gloucester subregion of methods described in the companion submethodology M02 for identifying water‑dependent assets (the Assets submethodology; Mount et al., 2014), outlining how the register was compiled. Key concepts and terminology are also explained.

The methods covered include: the process of collecting different groups of assets and determining their water dependency, the development and compilation of the water‑dependent asset register, and the determination of the preliminary assessment extent (PAE) of the Gloucester subregion.
