This dataset has been prepared by the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences Limited (GNS Science) for Bay of Plenty Regional Council. In compiling the dataset inferences have been made based on borehole observations, and assumptions have been made about geological structures. Experience and an appreciation of the limitations of the information is needed by persons using the dataset as an element in their decision making over access to and use of groundwater resources.

All reasonable effort has been made to ensure that the dataset is as accurate as practicable. However, because of the necessary inferences and assumptions that have been made in compiling the dataset, there is uncertainty inherent in the information, and it is therefore provided without warranties of any kind, including accuracy, completeness or fitness for any particular purpose. Bay of Plenty Regional Council and GNS Science, their employees and any external suppliers of data to the dataset, exclude to the full extent permitted by law, liability for any loss or damage, direct or indirect, and however caused, whether through negligence or otherwise, resulting from any data user's use or reliance on the data.
