18.8 Entitled extraction of non-allocated groundwater to users
The volume of entitled extraction of non-allocated groundwater to users could not be quantified in a way that is complete, neutral and free from material error.
Non-allocated extractions to users represent 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.
