Title

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

Alternative title(s)

Salinity Hazard for Northern Rivers 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 Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority (NRCMA) for use in upgrading its Catchment Action Plan (CAP). The Northern Rivers CAP is a cabinet approved document which outlines the investment priorities and delivery targets for natural resource management (NRM) across the NRCMA area. The NRCMA 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 Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority (NRCMA) 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 NRCMA 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 Groundwater Flow System data (polygon); published 1:1 million and 1:250 000 scale geological mapping data (polygon); soil profile data from the OEH SALIS database (point); and Digital Elevation Model (DEM) for Northern Rivers CMA. These datasets were combined and rationalised to create broad scale salinity hazard ratings for the entire Northern Rivers CMA area.

DQ Completeness Commission

Effective date

2012-01-08

Explanation

Spatial data capture is complete for presentation and useage at 1:250 000 only.

DQ Topological Consistency

Effective date

2012-01-08

Explanation

All polygons in the coverage are topologically correct and all polygons have been attributed. Data has been visually checked at applicable scales.

DQ Absolute External Positional Accuracy

Effective date

2012-01-08

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 1:250 000 scale mapping are generally accurate to 250 m.

DQ Non Quantitative Attribute Correctness

Effective date

2012-01-08

Explanation

All polygons are labelled with a salinity hazard rating tag. 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.
