Managing groundwater extraction to extraction limits
The amount of groundwater that can be extracted from a groundwater source is limited. If the limit established in the relevant water sharing plan is exceeded, the department may need to reduce access in the following year/s to return average extraction to the limit.
What we heard
Review what we heard from the 150 participants at our face-to-face meetings and through the 80 written submissions.
What is this about?
There are two main methods available to return average extraction to the extraction limit. These methods can be used separately, or in combination.
