The water-dependent asset register is a list of water-dependent assets identified for use in the bioregional assessment (BA) of the Hunter subregion. This section details the specific application to the Hunter subregion of methods described in the companion submethodology M02 for compiling water-dependent assets (Mount et al., 2015). Key concepts and terminology are also explained.
The methods covered include: defining the preliminary assessment extent (PAE) of the Hunter subregion and the processes for compiling assets, determining their water dependency, seeking and incorporating NSW state and local government feedback.
The asset list for the Hunter subregion contains 2545 assets that intersect the Hunter PAE, comprising 1836 ecological assets, 266 economic assets and 443 sociocultural assets.
Not all assets in the asset list make it into the water-dependent asset register. The reasons some ecological, economic and sociocultural assets in the asset list were not retained in the water-dependent asset register for the Hunter subregion are provided in Sections 1.3.2, 1.3.3 and 1.3.4, respectively.
The water-dependent asset register for the Hunter subregion contains 2207 assets, comprising 1651 ecological assets, 249 economic assets and 307 sociocultural assets.
