Soil and land constraint assessment maps: Hawkesbury Nepean Catchment

This dataset contains maps and data on soil and land constraints that may impact on a range of land uses throughout the Hawkesbury Nepean Catchment. It reveals the physical capability of the land for different land uses, together with a broad indication of potential economic costs associated with overcoming the constraints. It should assist in many planning and natural resource management processes throughout the catchment. Land uses dealt with include: development – standard residential, medium density, high density and rural residential agriculture – cropping and grazing wastewater disposal – surface irrigation, trench absorption and pump-out methods. Background information and methodology is provided in the accompanying Technical Report DECCW (2010) Soil and land constraint assessment for urban and regional planning.
