Potential impacts on landscape classes

More than 35,000 km2 of remnant vegetation, 59,000 km of streams, 1,600 km2 of wetlands and 93,000 km2 of productive landscapes within the assessment extent are very unlikely to be impacted because they are outside the zone of potential hydrological change, and thus experience less than 0.2 m drawdown due to additional coal resource development.

It is very unlikely that drawdown due to the two additional coal resource developments exceeds 0.2 m in the source aquifer of any springs in the assessment extent. This includes springs in the Springsure supergroup near Taroom, listed under the Commonwealth’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
