The water-dependent asset register for the Galilee subregion is a simple and authoritative list of assets within the assessment extent that are potentially affected by changes in water due to coal seam gas and coal mining development.
The initial register that accompanied the Description of the water-dependent asset register for the Galilee subregion report was extracted from the Galilee subregion asset database in September 2015.
Since then, the asset database has been updated. Information has also been added about whether any part of each asset occurs within the zone of potential hydrological change defined for the assessment. Using the updated database, an updated water-dependent asset register was extracted on 30 June 2017 and the counts of assets below are from that register. The impact and risk analysis and the outcome synthesis use the asset information from the updated register.
Some assets cannot be publicly distributed or displayed by the Bioregional Assessment Program due to restrictions on the use conditions of the datasets that describe them. However, many of these assets are available directly from their custodian. For more details, see the data dictionary included with the asset database.
The assessment extent includes the whole of the Galilee subregion along with a buffer of between 5 and 20 kilometres around all drainage channels to the north and east. To the south and the west the buffer is increased up to 200 kilometres to include the groundwater flow in the Eromanga Basin.
There are a total of 4262 water-dependent assets in the water-dependent assets in the Galilee subregion assessment extent.
Ecological water-dependent assets
There are 3982 ecological water-dependent assets in the assessment extent for the Galilee subregion.
Economic water-dependent assets
There are 129 economic water-dependent assets in the Galilee subregion. They include water access rights.
Sociocultural water-dependent assets
There are 151 sociocultural water-dependent assets in the assessment extent for the Galilee subregion.
A separate report on Indigenous water assets in the Galilee subregion is available. The report includes information relevant to this product and contributes to the bioregional assessment.
