18.7 Groundwater extractions – other statutory rights

Supporting information

The volume of groundwater extractions – other statutory rights could not be quantified in a way that is complete, neutral and free from material error.

Extractions for other statutory rights represent stock and domestic extraction from unincorporated areas outside of groundwater management units. Groundwater extractions (including for stock and domestic purposes) are licensed within groundwater management units and accounted for in licensed extractions (line item 18.11). Unincorporated areas have not been evaluated from a groundwater resource perspective and bores in these areas are not metered.
