WATER PLAN (PIONEER VALLEY) 2002 - REG 49G

Matters to be considered for water allocation change rules

49G Matters to be considered for water allocation change rules

(1) In deciding the water allocation change rules to be included in the resource operations plan for water allocations to take groundwater in a part of the groundwater management area, the chief executive must consider—
(a) the volume density for a locality in the part of the groundwater management area relative to the availability of water in the part; and
(b) the impact the proposed taking would have on the following—
(i) watercourses, lakes, springs, baseflow, waterholes or areas of ecological value;
(ii) the ecological values of relevant groundwater-dependent ecosystems;
(iii) seawater intrusion or areas of poor water quality;
(iv) other authorisations in the area of the proposed taking;
(v) nodes or monitoring bores in the part of the groundwater management area.
(2) Subsection (1) does not limit the matters the chief executive may consider.
(3) In this section—

"monitoring bore" means a water bore used for monitoring water levels in an aquifer.

"volume density" , for a locality in a part of the groundwater management area, means the total annual volumetric limits for all the water allocations in the locality divided by the area of the locality.
