Managing groundwater extraction to extraction limits
The amount of groundwater that can be extracted from a groundwater source is limited. If it is exceeded, the department may need to reduce access in the following year/s.
What is this about?
There are two methods available to return average extraction to the extraction limit. These methods can be used separately, or in combination. Using different approaches in different areas may be appropriate.
