Bore search - Surat CMA

You can obtain information about the predicted impacts of water extraction for a specific bore by entering the bore’s registration number in the search box below.

Bore number not found:

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

Note that only bores which were registered in the DNRME groundwater database in late 2018 and which are located within the Surat CMA are listed in this bore search tool. Recently registered bores may not be listed.

Information presented below is based on the assessment provided in the Draft Surat Underground Water Impact Report 2019 which was released for public consultation on 28 May 2019.

Bore registered number:

  • Geologic formation

  • Long-term predicted impact (metres)

  • Year in which predicted impact exceeds trigger threshold †

  • 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 be impacted 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 drawdown) on water levels in the formation at the location and depth of the bore is less than the trigger threshold†.

However, predicted impacts in other nearby bores accessing other formations or at different depths may be 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 be impacted by more than the trigger threshold† in the long term, as shown above. This long-term predicted impact is the maximum predicted drawdown at the location and depth of the bore at any time in the future. The year in which impacts are predicted to exceed the trigger threshold† is also provided.

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 drawdown before the end of 2021 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 depth

The long-term predicted impact on water level in this formation at the location and depth of the bore is shown above. The year in which impacts are predicted to exceed the trigger threshold† is also provided.

Description

This is an IAA bore in UWIR 2019 (Appendix G).

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 impacted by more than the trigger threshold† before the end of 2021.

The responsible tenure holder (listed above) is required to carry out a bore assessment to establish whether the predicted impact will result in actual impairment of the bore water supply and if necessary enter into a make good agreement with the bore owner (if an agreement is not already in place).

Description

Records indicate that this bore, which was previously identified as a bore likely to be immediately affected, has now been decommissioned or is in the process of being decommissioned.

Description

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

Description

Records indicate that the bore may be at least partly sourcing water from the geologic formation shown above and that impacts may exceed the trigger threshold† at some point in the future. However, this assessment is uncertain as it is based on very limited information on the construction of the bore.

OGIA will further investigate the construction of this bore to verify if the bore is likely to be impacted and may require make good arrangements.

Description

Records indicate that the bore may be at least partly sourcing water from the geologic formation shown above and that impacts may exceed the trigger threshold† at some point in the future. However, under the Water Act 2000 the bore is authorised to take water from a different formation which is not predicted to be impacted before the end of 2021.

OGIA will further investigate the matter with DNRME to verify the authorisation status of the bore. The outcome of this verification will determine whether or not the bore will require make good arrangements.

† 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.
Recovery
Time at which drawdown no longer exceeds the trigger threshold.
