Title

Salinity Hazard for Catchment Action Plan (CAP) Updates: Murray CMA Area - August 2012

Alternative title(s)

Salinity Hazard for Murray CMA CAP Update

Abstract

The thirteen NSW Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs) are required to update their Catchment Action Plans (CAPs) in a process to be completed by early 2013. The CAPs are required to be "Whole of Government" in order to provide greater coherence between policies and plans as they develop strategic direction at regional levels. CAPs must align with or take into account common elements of agency activity, and require a high level of co-ordination. ; A cross agency team was employed in December 2011 to produce a salinity tool for CAP updates, as a Salinity Hazard for CAP Updates project. This project has been funded by Catchment Action NSW.; The primary output of the Salinity Hazard for CAP Updates project is a broad scale salinity hazard spatial coverage and report for each CMA. The product referred to in this metadata statement is produced for the Murray CMA for use in upgrading its Catchment Action Plan (CAP). The Murray CAP is a cabinet approved document which outlines the investment priorities and delivery targets for natural resource management (NRM) across the Murray CMA area. The Murray CMA is currently reviewing and upgrading the CAP which was developed in 2004-05.

Purpose

This data package describes the hazard posed by salinity for different parts of the Murray CMA catchments. The Salinity Hazard for Catchment Action Plan (CAP) Update map is a specific product for CAP planning. It is appropriate at the catchment scale. More detailed investigations are required for sub-regional works. The data package was generated for the Murray CMA to assist with the update of its CAP.

Lineage

The Salinity Hazard for Catchment Action Plan (CAP) Update spatial product used the following base data for delineation of map units: existing Hydrogeological Landscape mapping data for the Eastern Murray (polygon); Reconnaissance Soil Landscapes of the Riverine Plains data (polygon); Reconnaissance Soil and Land Resources of the Murray CMA data (polygon); published 1:250 000 soil landscape data (polygon); soil profile data from the OEH SALIS database (point); published 1:1 million and 1:250 000 geological mapping data (polygon); published NSW Salinity Audit data for mean stream salinity and stream salt load (polygon); Groundwater Flow Systems data (polygon); unpublished 2003 State Salinity Hazard project data for soil salt store, depth to watertable and groundwater salinity (polygon)and Digital Elevation Model (DEM) for Murray CMA and derivative products taken from the 25 metre DEM. The published and reconnaissance level mapping were combined and rationalised to create complete hydrogeological landscape classification (map unit) coverage for the entire Murray CMA area.

Absolute External Positional Accuracy

revision

Effective date

2012-08-01

Explanation

The accuracy of the coverage varies across the mapping area as map polygon boundaries were derived from different sources. Boundaries derived from published and draft 1:100 000 scale mapping are generally accurate to 100 m. Boundaries derived from published 1:250 000 scale mapping are approximate and generally accurate to 250 m. Boundaries based on Groundwater Flow System mapping are less accurate due to smoothing of noisy datasets and should only be considered for catchment scale planning purposes.

Non Quantitative Attribute Accuracy

Effective date

2012-08-01

Explanation

All polygons are labelled with a salinity hazard rating tags. Attributes were checked as part of routine GIS capture quality assurance procedures, including a visual check of polygon tags against field data. Regular meetings were held to discuss and review methods, processes and consistency in interpretation and documentation.
