Hydro Line spatial data
Hydro Line spatial data contains mapped information about watercourses and waterbodies in NSW, Australia. It is based on the Spatial Services (Department of Finance, Services & Innovation) NSW Hydro Line dataset.
The purpose of the Hydro Line spatial data is to determine the Strahler stream order of a stream. This information can help identify:
- exemptions from water licences/approvals: determine whether a watercourse is exempt from requiring a water licence or approval under the Water Management (General) Regulation 2018.
- links for harvestable rights dams help identify suitable locations on a property for constructing harvestable rights dams.
How to access the Hydro Line spatial map
The Hydro Line spatial data is available in the department’s web mapping portal.
