To help you design, build and manage a successful managed aquifer recharge scheme, whether a domestic or non-domestic scheme, the following information is available:
For non-domestic managed aquifer recharge schemes, the following documents are required to be used in addition to those above when developing the application package prior to a submission to our department or the Environment Protection Authority (EPA):
You may also need to consider:
- The taking of prescribed groundwater and surface water in some areas will require authorisation or licence from the department. Find out if this applies to you.
- Drilling a well requires a well construction permit.
- Draining domestic rainwater into an aquifer requires a drainage and discharge permit. Find out what information you’ll need to apply for a permit and get the permit form
For Annual Reporting to the EPA and the department, the two agencies have developed a joint Managed Aquifer Recharge Annual Reporting Template to assist the reporting process.
Creating a PivotTable in Excel may assist in utilising the templates for reporting purposes.
