A review of the Klohn Crippen Berger report: ‘Southern and Eastern Recharge Groundwater Sources: Literature Review and Recommended Recharge Rates’ (February 2020).

Author: ABWUA
I understand Klohn Crippen Berger Ltd (KCB) were retained by the NSW Department of Industry, Planning and Environment (DPIE) to ‘conduct a literature review of published recharge mechanisms and collate existing estimates of recharge for the Great Artesian Basin (GAB), focusing on the Southern and Eastern Recharge Groundwater Sources in New South Wales’. As a result of their review, KCB recommended recharge volumes in the Southern and Eastern Recharge Groundwater Sources should be increased.

NSW Great Artesian Basin Groundwater Resource Description Report

Author: ABWUA
WATER SHARING PLAN FOR THE NSW GREAT ARTESIAN BASIN
GROUNDWATER SOURCES
Groundwater Resource Description
NSW Great Artesian Basin
February 2020

The Water Sharing Plan for the NSW Great Artesian Basin Groundwater Sources 2008 (WSP 2008) started in July 2008 for a period of 10 years up to June 2018. In June 2018, the Natural Resources Commission reviewed the WSP 2008 and recommended it for replacement in July 2020. Water sharing plans align with state-based water resource management policies and build on the existing water planning and management frameworks that have been established in NSW. 

The Great Artesian Basin (GAB) is Australia’s largest groundwater basin, spreading across 1.7 million square kilometres of New South Wales (NSW), Queensland, South Australia and Northern Territory, or approximately 22% of Australia. The GAB underlies 207,592 square kilometres of New South Wales.
