You will require one of these licences if you intend to construct, alter, operate, remove or decommission any works on a waterway or groundwater bore.
Works include works to deviate a waterway or private dam, and covers all domestic and stock dams that are built on waterways. This approval is not required for farm dams that are not on a waterway.
New or continuing works on a bore that alter or replace a groundwater bore greater than three metres in depth will require:
- Works Licence (Bore Construction); or
- Works Licence (Bore Decommission).
