Groundwater is Eyre Peninsula's most precious resource and has become the sole source of reticulated water to meet potable and industrial demand. Water resources on Eyre Peninsula are scarce and fragile, particularly in the low rainfall regions, with few reliable freshwater streams and the groundwater availability is highly variable. The groundwater recharge and hence the security of the resource, is highly dependent upon local rainfall, landcover and landuse. Surface water is scarce and unreliable, and reticulated water is limited. Difficulty in accessing water resources has placed both a social and economic burden on the rural community throughout the region. The information contained on the CD will provide a vital framework for the future management planning of the available resources in the region.
