The receptor register is a list of points in the landscape called receptors, where potential water-related impacts on assets are assessed in a bioregional assessment. The receptors are chosen to enable complete, representative and efficient assessment of impacts.
Hydrological impacts at receptors are estimated based on hydrological changes reported in product 2.6.1: surface water numerical modelling and product 2.6.2: groundwater numerical modelling. Ecological impacts at receptors are reported for assessments that develop receptor impact models described in product 2.7: receptor impact modelling. Both hydrological and ecological impacts are reported in product 3 and product 4: impact and risk analysis.
Development of the receptor register follows guidelines presented in the M03 Assigning receptors to water-dependent assets submethodology.
