Central and North Rural Weekly - - DROUGHT RESILIENCE PROJECT -

NEED to find out about ground­wa­ter data in 2018?

A new ver­sion of the Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy’s Na­tional Ground­wa­ter In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem (NGIS) data­base is now avail­able, fol­low­ing as­sis­tance from lead wa­ter agen­cies in each state and ter­ri­tory.

The up­dated NGIS con­tains bore and bore log data for more than 880,000 bores across Aus­tralia, with up­dated ground­wa­ter man­age­ment ar­eas dataset.

NGIS data can be viewed through the Aus­tralian Ground­wa­ter Ex­plorer, as well as ground­wa­ter level and salin­ity data across the na­tion by us­ing the in­ter­ac­tive ap­pli­ca­tion. Data is avail­able as ta­bles and graphs, and the hy­dro­graphs also in­clude rain­fall trends and long-term av­er­ages.

The ground­wa­ter level and salin­ity datasets are cur­rent to July 2018 for some sites.
