The NWC has issued the following Waterlines Reports:

Guidance for groundwater storage utilisation in water planning describes how extraction regimes should be selected as part of the planning process by weighing up the benefits of extraction versus the risks associated with changes to water levels, pressures, recharge and discharge on both short and long term basis.  (Download from NWC)

Australian groundwater modelling guidelines highlights the development of updated guidelines that promote a consistent and sound approach to groundwater flow and solute transport models in Australia. (Download from NWC)

‘Assessment of groundwater licensing, metering and extraction estimation arrangements and techniques in Australia’ provides a summary of jurisdictional progress towards achieving the licensing and metering expectations of the National Water Initiative (NWI), and considers alternative extraction estimation arrangements given the practical difficulties in achieving full metering over the short to medium term.  (Download from NWC)
