Identification of gaining streams in the Surat Cumulative Management Area
Report summarising an investigation to identify surface water streams that are fed by groundwater in the Surat CMA. The accurate mapping of these ‘gaining streams’ is essential to help us improve our understanding of how surface and groundwater interact.
Groundwater connectivity between the Condamine Alluvium and the Walloon Coal Measures
Report summarising investigations into the flow of groundwater between 2 major geological formations in the Surat Basin - the Condamine Alluvium and the Walloon Coal Measures.
