Centre for Water in the Minerals Industry (University of Queensland)
CSG companies and the Queensland Government collect data about the volumes of various types of groundwater use. This data helps estimate groundwater extraction volumes used in groundwater models which inform decisions regarding the management of the industry and plan water allocations. For example, the Queensland Government model is used to identify which private water bores are likely to have declining groundwater levels as a result of CSG industry activities and compensation for water loss is negotiated between the companies and...

The amount of water (flux) entering an aquifer as recharge is a critical factor in determining how water table levels change, the sustainable yields for groundwater extraction, and the impact of extractive industries on groundwater availability. However, the processes that govern this flux remain difficult to quantify, and are therefore considerable sources of uncertainty in modelling the groundwater balance and conducting impact assessments. Due to the geological complexity of the Surat and Bowen Basins, recharge can occur via multiple pathways...

A technical feasibility study was completed to determine if there is sufficient groundwater quality data available to develop a Water Chemistry Atlas with the capability to address key technical questions regarding regional water quality trends and provide valuable information to government, industry and the community. Key steps included: Developing a test database structure for the Atlas and use of a subset of data from the Office of Groundwater Impact Assessment (OGIA) water quality database for trial purposes. using a range...

This project builds on the database and prototype software tools that were developed in the Water Atlas Feasibility Study undertaken in 2014. This project will enlarge the scope of the Atlas from the pilot sub-region to the full extent of the Surat Basin and the prototype software tools will be refined to improve performance. Additional datasets will be added and new visualisation, analytical and reporting tools will be developed. Protocols for database access, sharing, security and maintenance will also be...

Minerals Industry Safety and Health Centre (University of Queensland)
The aim of this research is to better understand the impact of resource development on public health outcomes within and between three different resource community types in Queensland using a mixed methods approach. Incidence rates for various health conditions will be calculated using routinely collected data from the Queensland Hospital Admitted Patient Data Collection (QHAPDC) for the study period 1995-2011. Subjective data on personal experience of health will be obtained via surveys.

The aims of this project were to: identify and define water-related issues within the coal mining, CSG and agricultural sectors; explore the regional character of these issues; identify cross-sector risks to the coal mining industry and generate a spatial data product that locates where competition and conflict are most intense between sectors.
