The scope and objectives of the East Gnangara Environmental Water Provisions Plan encompassed a number of factors, including:

  • identification of ecosystem components with high environmental and social values,
  • determination of environmental water requirements (EWRs) and EWPs for each ecosystem component,
  • determination of quantity of water available for public and private groundwater abstraction,
  • computer modelling of differing abstraction scenarios to model likely impact of groundwater abstraction,
  • prediction of the changes in water levels induced by groundwater abstraction, to determine if conflicts are likely,
  • proposed long-term management and monitoring of groundwater in the study area.
