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 UWIR for the Surat CMA was prepared in 2012. That report is now superseded by the 2016 Surat UWIR.

The 2016 Surat UWIR was finalised after public consultation on a draft version. OGIA considered all submissions in finalising the report. The submissions summary provides an overview of the submissions received during the consultation period and explains how OGIA has dealt with the submissions in amending the draft report.

The Chief Executive of EHP approved the 2016 UWIR with conditions and a take-effect date of 19 September 2016. The 2012 UWIR ceased to apply from this date. The decision notice sets out the approval conditions.

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.
