|Groundwater a Resource for the Future |
Groundwater is a major natural resource in the Murray-Darling Basin. Its current and future management will have a fundamental impact on the economic viability of many of the Basin's regional communities. In some parts of the Basin, groundwater is an underutilised resource. In others, it is being used unsustainably.
This booklet has been designed to be useful to water managers, policy makers, students and those members of the public with an interest in the groundwater systems of the Murray-Darling Basin. Although salinity issues are discussed they are not the primary focus of the publication. A listing of relevant publications and details of relevant websites have been included.
