Environmental Planning Instrument - Groundwater Vulnerability

This spatial dataset identifies the land where development implications exist due to the presence of vulnerable groundwater resources as designated by the relevant NSW environmental planning instrument. The data shows show the vulnerability (or level of risk) of aquifers to contamination relating to physical characteristics of the location, such as the depth to the water table and soil type.
