FREE HYDROGEOLOGICAL DATA – have I got your attention!

Successful outcomes of the Secure Allocation, Future Entitlement (SAFE) project.

Chris McAuley is the Principal Hydrogeologist with the Department of Sustainability and Environment, Victoria.  Over the past 3 years, Chris has led the National Water Commission funded Secure Allocation, Future Entitlement (SAFE) project.  The SAFE project has recommended a revised framework for management of Victoria’s groundwater resources, updated guidance on making groundwater resource share decisions and a program of transition to the revised framework.  The framework is comprised of 20 groundwater catchments in 5 groundwater basins.  The project was supported by 15 engagement workshops, twenty two separate technical and consultation reports, along with over 40 spatial data information products.  This included 3 dimensional (3D) mapping of the water bearing aquifers across the entire State.  The information outputs from the project are freely available.  Come along to find out more.
