Estimated Level of Use - Darwin Rural Groundwater Resources

This spatial dataset describes the estimated use of groundwater resources within the Darwin Rural Water Control District and the Palmerston Municipality. This information will be updated on a weekly basis. Users should refer to the date that the estimated level of use was generated.

A desktop assessment describes an estimated level of use for each groundwater resource zone. This supports investigations for a better understanding of the use of groundwater, in particular, the groundwater resource zones that do not have a current management plan. The data is intended to clarify the department's position in relation to water availability in 112 groundwater resource zones in the Darwin Rural Water Control District and Palmerston Municipal area. It does not include consideration of surface water resources in these areas.
