Water Resources of the Wadeye Area 2020

A groundwater resource investigation has been undertaken in the Wadeye Area as part of the Mapping the Future project 2018-2022 to inform land use and water resource planning. The groundwater assessment component of the project has provided baseline knowledge on aquifer parameters essential to the planning of any horticultural development.

An analysis was undertaken to produce a map delineating the level of groundwater resource risk associated with development. The study has been divided into four levels of risk (Low, Minor, Moderate or High), taking into consideration the risk criteria of electrical conductivity, aquifer thickness and depth below surface to productive aquifer.
