Bore search

Search for predicted impacts on individual water bores in the Surat Cumulative Management Area

The maps in the Surat Underground Water Impact Report are at a regional scale. As a result, it may not be clear where a particular bore is located in relation to areas identified in the report.

If you are the owner of a bore in the Surat Cumulative Management Area, you can obtain specific information about the predicted impacts at the site of your bore by entering the RN below.

Bore number not found:

Sorry, we could not find a bore matching the number you have entered. Make sure you have entered the correct number.

Bore registered number:

  • Geologic formation

  • Long-term predicted impact (metres)

  • Responsible tenure holder ‡

Description

This bore is located outside the long-term affected area† for any geologic formations.

This means that none of the formations present at the bore location are predicted to decline by more than the trigger threshold† at any time in the future.

Description

Records indicate that the bore is at least partly sourcing water from the geologic formation listed above.

The long-term predicted impact (maximum water level decline) on water levels in the formation at the location and depth of the bore is less than the trigger threshold†.

However, other nearby bores accessing other formations or at greater depth may experience a decline in water level greater than the trigger threshold.

Description

Records indicate that the bore is at least partly sourcing water from the geologic formation shown above.

At the location and depth of the bore, the water level in the formation is predicted to decline by more than the trigger threshold† in the long term, as shown above. However, the water level will not decline more than the trigger threshold before the end of 2018.

The long-term predicted impact (shown above) is the maximum predicted water level decline at the location and depth of the bore at any time in the future.

Description

Records indicate that the bore is at least partly sourcing water from the geologic formation shown above.

The responsible tenure holder listed above is required to carry out a baseline assessment of this bore (if this has not already been undertaken) as:

  • the predicted water level decline before the end of 2018 falls in the range 1 to 5 metres; or
  • it is located inside the predicted immediately affected area† but is not expected to be affected in the short term due to its shallow depth

The long-term predicted impact on water level in this formation at the location and depth of the bore is shown above.

Description

Records indicate that the bore is at least partly sourcing water from the geologic formation shown above.

The long-term predicted impact on water level in this formation at the location and depth of the bore is shown above.

The bore sources water from a geologic formation located inside the predicted immediately affected area†. This means that at the location and depth of this bore, the water level in the formation is predicted to decline by more than the trigger threshold† before the end of 2018.

The responsible tenure holder (listed above) is required to carry out a bore assessment and if necessary enter in a make good agreement with the bore owner (if an agreement is not already in place) about impairment of bore water supply associated with the predicted decline of water level.

Description

Although registered on the DNRM groundwater database based on other departmental records, we believe this bore is not an existing water bore as defined in S363 of the Water Act 2000.

Description

Records indicate that the bore is at least partly sourcing water from the geologic formation shown above.

At the location and depth of the bore, the water level in the formation is predicted to decline by more than the trigger threshold in the long term, as shown. However, the water level will not decline more than the trigger threshold before the end of 2018.

The long-term predicted impact (shown above) is the maximum predicted water level decline at the location and depth of the bore at any time in the future.

Injection of treated CSG water into the Precipice has recently commenced nearby. The potential positive impact on regional pressures is substantial, but has yet to be fully assessed. Long-term impact predictions in the Precipice are therefore preliminary and will be updated based on the results of a more detailed sub-regional assessment.

† Glossary

Trigger threshold
The amount of predicted decline in water level in an aquifer impacted by CSG operations, over and above the seasonal or climatic water level fluctuations and those caused by non-CSG activities, which could pose a risk to water supply from the bore. The trigger threshold is five metres for consolidated aquifers (for example, sandstone) and two metres for unconsolidated aquifers (for example, sand).
Immediately affected area
The area of a geologic formation where water levels in the underground water formation are predicted to decline, due to water extraction by petroleum tenure holders, by more than the trigger threshold within three years.
Long-term affected area
The area where water levels in a geologic formation are predicted to decline, due to water extraction by petroleum tenure holders, by more than the trigger threshold at any time in the future.
Responsible tenure holder
The petroleum tenure holder identified in the Underground Water Impact Report as the tenure holder responsible for relevant activities such as the 'make good' arrangements.
Geologic Formation
The bore may be sourcing water from one or more geologic formations. The geological formation listed is the formation, from which the bore is at least partly sourcing water, predicted to have the greatest water level decline. This may not be the primary producing formation from which the bore is sourcing water.
