Activity 5: Vulnerability of aquifers to coal seam gas water extraction

Activity 5 assessed the vulnerability of the aquifers of the Surat and southern Bowen basins to CSG industry development in the Walloon, Bandana and Baralaba coal measures. Its aim was to provide a better understanding of which aquifers are most vulnerable to, and at greatest risk of impacts from, CSG water extraction.

Outputs of this activity are of value to the Office of Groundwater Impact Assessment in the review of its groundwater flow model to assess impacts of CSG water extraction in the cumulative management areas.
