Groundwater Impact Assessments    

The regulatory authorities responsible for intensive livestock licensing require a comprehensive GWIA as part of the Development Application for the particular enterprise.

The level of detail in the GWIA varies considerably with groundwater vulnerability. The GWIA is a study of the ground and surface water resources in the proposed development area, and assesses the potential impact the proposed development may have on these resources. The following information needs to gathered and analysed as part of the GWIA:

All registered bores within 5 km of the property

  • Site geology
  • Site hydrology
  • The average depth of groundwater in the region
  • Investigation into the geological nature of the area
  • Approaches to minimise groundwater contamination
FSA Consulting employs the services of a qualified groundwater analyst to undertake the GWIA on behalf of the client.
