Source: Digitised off Glenorchy Water and Sewer Engineering Detail plans c1938-1972. The purpose of the plans was to map municipal assets, not non-council gas lines. The depiction of the gas lines was to show nearby infrastructure where it was known as the water and sewer surveys were completed. Hence the information in this dataset cannot be relied upon as a complete record of gas locations.

Currency: Unless pipes have recently been exposed and surveyed, the currency of the dataset is as captured off the old detail plans.

Completeness: Unknown.

Attribute Accuracy: Variable.

Spatial Accuracy: Attributed per feature. Some field verification has been incorporated where pipes have been exposed.

Spatial Coverage: GCC municipal area covered by the extent of the old detail plans.

Custodian: Custodian no longer exists. Whilst GCC hold copyright over the dataset it does not have, and has never had, any liability or responsibility for the actual infrastructure.. We release the data in the interests of public safety as we believe we hold the only information regarding this infrastructure.
