Groundwater Monitoring – CSG Net Group

The Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM) CSG Compliance Unit has established CSG Net Groups which aim to assist landowners to effectively monitor water levels in their water bores. Registering for a CSG Net Group allows landowners to upload monitoring data online using a program which automatically generates monitoring graphs for that selected bore. This allows landowners to identify trends and enables early identification of changes in water levels or bore performance.

Annual reports are generated for each CSG Net Group which provides a summary of data collected and groundwater trends in the area.

Data collected as part of the program is automatically forwarded to DNRM where it is stored in the Groundwater Database. The results are used to cross-reference monitoring results from CSG companies.

The following CSG Net groups currently operate:

Chinchilla Kumbarilla Wallumbilla north
Condamine Miles Wallumbilla South
Eurombah Creek Millmerran Wandoan
Injune East Noonga-Dulacca
Injune Southwest Taroom West

We strongly encourage all landholders with water bores to participate in this monitoring program. More information can be obtained from https://www.business.qld.gov.au/industry/csg-lng-industry/csg-lng-information-landholders/groundwater-monitoring or by contacting the CSG Compliance Unit.
