The water-dependent asset register is a list of water-dependent assets identified for use in the bioregional assessment (BA) of the Sydney Basin bioregion. This section details the specific application to the Sydney Basin bioregion of methods described in the companion submethodology M02 for compiling water-dependent assets . Key concepts and terminology are also explained.
The methods covered include: defining the preliminary assessment extent (PAE) of the Sydney Basin bioregion and the processes for compiling assets, determining their water dependency, and seeking and incorporating NSW state and local government feedback.
The asset list for the Sydney Basin bioregion contains 1460 assets that intersect the Sydney Basin PAE, comprising 1148 ecological assets, 61 economic assets and 251 sociocultural assets.
Not all assets in the asset list met the criteria for inclusion in the water-dependent asset register. Section 1.3.2 and Section 1.3.4 provide details of ecological and sociocultural assets that did not meet the criteria for inclusion in the water-dependent asset register for the Sydney Basin bioregion. All the economic assets in the asset list are water dependent.
The water-dependent asset register for the Sydney Basin bioregion contains 1002 assets, comprising 751 ecological assets, 61 economic assets and 190 sociocultural assets.
