The data in the Surface Water Licences dataset do not include details of the river reach where the offtake was located; instead data included the Water Source and Water Management Zone that is associated with the water sharing plan (WSP). A water source can be any set of rivers, aquifers or lakes and the like, which are defined by a gazetted WSP to be a water source. Therefore when the elements are aggregated into the asset, water licences are grouped together across the water source which is a large polygon that includes multiple reaches. This will need to be taken into account when assigning receptor locations.
