Responsible management of water resources involves ensuring that river flows, lake and groundwater levels can sustain aquatic environments, while also allowing use of water for drinking water supply and other agricultural, commercial, industrial and recreational purposes. To assess if our water resources are being managed sustainably, it is important to know what volume of water is being abstracted and from which rivers, lakes and groundwater.This water abstraction register aims to capture this information and the data will be used in conjunction with information on discharges, flow and water level data, and water status to identify if there are any rivers, lakes or groundwater bodies that have unsustainable abstractions that require active management.These regulations indicate that if abstracted water is put to many uses by different people then all are liable in relation to the abstraction and therefore at least one of those people must register the abstraction.It is considered that abstraction volumes below 25 cubic meters (25,000 litres) of water each day are unlikely to have a significant detrimental impact on the water environment and would therefore not require to be registered. The volumes may be based on measured flows or the Quick Abstraction Volume Estimator can be used where flows are un-measured. There is no fee to register.
