HydroAccumlatedFrame dataset to accompany National water allocation statistics for environmental reporting; 2018 report.
This report updates previously published statistics on water consented to be taken from surface and groundwater sources for consumptive uses (such as irrigation or drinking water). The report focusses on the potential pressure on surface water flows from consumptive water takes. Stream flow pressure is characterised by accumulating water consented to be taken as percentage of median flow in all river reaches affected by consented takes in New Zealand.
Data relating to: a) the influence of all non-hydroelectric consents; b) the influence all consumptive hydroelectric consents; and c) the combined influence of all consumptive consents, regardless of hydroelectric or non-hydroelectric. Please note that the upstream accumulated total for each nzsegment can appear in multiple rows; once for each FactorName.

This set of data sets provides an estimation of groundwater flux. There are three components: Groundwater recharge: development of nationwide mean (daily and seasonal) groundwater recharge data sets through the combination of three pre-existing groundwater recharge models; Groundwater–surface water exchange: development of a national indicative groundwater discharge data set using an existing national groundwater flow model, as well as comparison with a pre-existing gaining/losing stream prediction data set; Groundwater flow: development of a national groundwater flow data set using an existing national groundwater flow model. For more detail on the process and methods, see Westerhoff et al. (2019). New Zealand groundwater atlas: Groundwater Fluxes. Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. 60 p. Consultancy Report 2019/126.
A national groundwater model was used to estimate near-surface groundwater flow amplitudes and separated into four classes to encompass the uncertainty of the dataset.
