Hunter Valley Bioregional Assessment
Following workshops with key stakeholders across the bioregional assessment regions, the Australian Government is working to finalise a number of bioregional assessments.
A new map-based component of the Bioregional Assessment Program website titled 'BA Explorer' is now able to display information about how groundwater levels and surface water flows might change as a result of coal seam gas and coal mining development in a particular region.
Results for the Maranoa-Balonne-Condamine (MBC) bioregional assessment are now available on the BA Explorer. Results for the Hunter, Galilee, Gloucester and Namoi regions will be added to BA Explorer when the assessments are released.
