Description / Abstract: This study assesses the potential demand for water for rural stock and domestic and other small volume groundwater uses within the draft Oolloo Dolostone Water Allocation Plan (WAP) area, not requiring a licence. Current usage, based on a 2016 review and recent data, is estimated at 1406 megalitres per year (ML/y). Potential increase in future demand for water from the Dolostone Aquifer, for cattle grazing native pastures, is expected to be insignificant. There is, however, potential for increased demand for cattle grazing rain-fed improved pastures; with approximately 80,000 hectares of land within the WAP that could be developed. A development rate of 10% of this land by 2026 could potentially see an increase in stock water demand by up to 140 ML/y, from the current base of 1,346 ML/y. The potential increase in water demand by 2026, for rural domestic and other small groundwater use not requiring a licence, is expected to be insignificant.
