  • The Technical Supporting Document. Depending on the specific water use applied for, this technical supporting document have a different format, containing different information. This may be as simple as a Section 21(a) application, or as complex as a Section 21(f), (g) or (c)/(i) application. Frequently, there are more water uses relevant, that need to be addressed in one document, at the same time defining the impact that the various water uses may have on other water users in the area. This document may include an EIA or Scoping section, and ERA (Environmental Risk Assessment), Cost Benefit Analysis, Monitoring and Management Plans and Strategies, and should be in line with the regional Catchment Management Plan. Also known as Integrated Water Resource Management Plans or Integrated Water and Waste Management Plans.
