Water Information Reporting

Water Information Reporting is a map-driven system allowing users to:

·         Locate measurement and monitoring sites held in the department’s water information systems (Groundwater, Meteorological, Surface sampling and Stream Gauging sites)
·         View details for sites such as identifiers and names, coordinates, depth reference points and borehole information
·         Examine summary information on the measurements and samples collected at sites, classified by variable type and data category
·         Extract data such as site details, water quality and water levels for chosen sites, for further analysis.
How to Use
  • Use the map interface and searching / filtering tools to find sites that are of interest to you.
  • Select identify tool and left-click on a site to bring up its details, along with summary information about the data collected at the site, and links to individual site reports.
  • If you require further data extracted, add the site to your site cart. (Please note there is a 1,000 Site maximum).
  • Once you have finished selecting sites, submit your data request, provide some delivery details and then choose the data reports you wish to run.
  • The data reports will be either emailed to you, or if too large, made accessible from the Department’s FTP site (instructions on downloading will be provided by email)
