Supporting information

Quantification approach

Data source

Water Information and Licence Management Administration (WILMA) database.

Provided by

South Australian Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources.

Method

The South Australian Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation announced a 100% allocation of 1 kL/unit share for the Class 6 WAE. Based on this allocation rate and the number of Class 6 shares held, the volume of water reported was 130,000 ML. This data was obtained from the WILMA database.

Assumptions, limitations, caveats and approximations

The Class 6 WAE is represented as a claim held on behalf of the Adelaide region; however, a proportion of the water abstracted under this claim services users outside the boundary of the Adelaide region.

Uncertainty information

The uncertainty estimate was not quantified.
