Water Resources of North East Bathurst Island

A preliminary land, water and biodiversity investigation in late 2013 identified several areas across the Tiwi Islands as potentially suitable for agricultural land. The area targeted for detailed survey was selected in collaboration with other Northern Territory Government departments and traditional owners. The resulting study area targeted an area of 14 000 ha on north east Bathurst Island. The associated technical report describes the bio-physical resources for the study area, including; geology, geomorphology, groundwater, surface water, land resources, flora, fauna and crop suitability. This spatial dataset, surveyed at a scale of 1:25,000, provides polygon information on the Groundwater and Surface water map unit of the Water Resources of NE Bathurst Island, Northern Territory. The purpose of this survey was to map, describe and evaluate the water resources information for planning and management.
