Surat Underground Water Impact Report

The Underground Water Impact Report (UWIR) for the Surat Cumulative Management Area (CMA) provides an assessment of the impacts of water extraction by petroleum tenure holders on underground water resources in the Surat CMA, and specifies  integrated  management arrangements. The first Surat UWIR was approved in 2012.

The Draft UWIR 2016 updates that report using a new groundwater flow that incorporates new knowledge about the groundwater flow system. The draft was released for consultation on 22 March 2016. The consultation period closed on 29 April 2016.

After considering all submissions, OGIA finalised the report and submitted it to the Chief Executive of the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection on 31 May 2016 for consideration for approval.

The final report will be published on website when approved.

If you are the owner of a bore in the Surat CMA, you can obtain specific information about the predicted impacts at the location of your bore. Search for predicted impacts at your water bore.

The Surat CMA is identified in the map below.
