Site Water Balance
The site water balance was completed in line with the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) Water Accounting Framework. The framework is an initiative of the MCA to allow for consistent reporting of water use in the minerals industry and to meet the requirements of the Australian Water Accounting Standard, which is currently under development of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology Water Division.
The site water balance for CVO is published each year in the Annual Environmental Management Report (AEMR) that can be downloaded from the CVO Performance Reporting web page.
