Groundwater resources of the Gunn Point Area, 2020

A groundwater resource investigation has been undertaken in the Gunn Point region as part of the Mapping the Future project 2018-2022 to inform land use and water resource planning. The project successfully mapped groundwater quality types and the distribution of salinity across the study area.

An analysis was undertaken to produce a map delineating the level of groundwater resource risk associated with development. The study area has been divided into four levels of risk, taking into consideration the factors of electrical conductivity, access to diffuse recharge, impact from salinity and known difficulties in constructing successful bores.

This information is part of the Mapping the Future Project - Gunn Point This project has identified land capability, water availability and biodiversity values to support land planning and inform development potential over the Gunn Point area. Reports and maps can be viewed from the webpage:
