Groundwater resource descriptions
We have produced a series of resource description reports as part of the development of water resource plans for each groundwater source in the Murray-Darling Basin. Simply select the plan by region, which takes you to the main page for that plan. Within the ‘draft plan’ you will find an appendix titled ‘… water resource plan area description’. These reports provide a comprehensive overview of each groundwater resource. They describe the location, climate and physical attributes of the groundwater resource. They also present the current status of the groundwater resource including licensing and use, and discuss the response of the groundwater system to variability in groundwater use and rainfall.
Expanding our networks
We are increasing the spatial coverage of our monitoring bore network through the drilling of new groundwater bores. Visit Water Monitoring Strategy for Coal Basins in NSW for more information.
From time to time the department (or a consultant engaged on behalf of the department) undertakes groundwater studies to better understand our groundwater systems. Some of our recent work includes:
