Water

Monitoring of various aspects of the local water resources at Cadia Valley Operations (CVO) is conducted in accordance with the CVO Water Management Plan.

The plan was developed by Newcrest in consultation with the NSW Office of Water (NOW), Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water (DECCW) and local residents. Consultation with local residents was conducted in three focus groups:

  • Surface water – residents along Flyers Creek
  • Groundwater – residents within the predicted groundwater impact zone
  • Groundwater plus – concerned residents from outside the predicted groundwater impact zone

Monitoring includes:

  • Site water balance
  • Surface water flows and quality
  • Groundwater levels and quality

Site Water Balance

The site water balance was completed in line with the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) Water Accounting Framework. The framework is an initiative of the MCA to allow for consistent reporting of water use in the minerals industry and to meet the requirements of the Australian Water Accounting Standard, which is currently under development of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology Water Division.

The current water balance for CVO is presented here: Site Water Account 2014-15.
