Our Projects - Groundwater

Broken Hill Managed Aquifer Recharge Project
The Broken Hill Managed Aquifer Recharge (BHMAR) project was undertaken to investigate and provide recommendations for groundwater-related options to help secure Broken Hill’s water supply during drought.
Palaeovalley Groundwater Resources Project
This national-scale work significantly improved Australia's capacity to assess groundwater resources in palaeovalley systems in the most cost-effective manner.
Bioregional Assessment Program
Bioregional assessments are world-first, science based studies that will develop detailed, multi-layered records of the natural environment in a particular geographic region.
A National Scale Vulnerability Assessment of Seawater Intrusion Project
Geoscience Australia undertook a national-scale assessment of the vulnerability of coastal aquifers to seawater intrusion.
Sustainable Management of Coastal Groundwater Resources Project
The Sustainable Management of Coastal Groundwater Resources project aims to improve water management in coastal aquifers through the demonstration of an integrated approach to managing the availability and quality of coastal groundwater resources.
National Water Quality Management Strategy
Geoscience Australia was contracted to evaluate whether a revision of the National Water Quality Management Strategy (NWQMS) Groundwater Protection in Australia Guidelines was required, and if so, to advise on the scope of review requirements.
