Scientists from Australia’s National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT) say they have been impressed with recharge rates of groundwater following the 2011 floods in Queensland and Victoria.

Researchers at the NCGRT are making estimates of Australian groundwater availability in the future based on learning gauged from the recent floods. With this information the NCGRT intends to provide state and Australian Government water authorities with a clearer picture of ground water demands.

This information will also look at how to form sustainable procedures for Australia’s underground reserves well into the future. The NCGRT is an Australian Government initiative, supported by the ARC and the National Water Commission.
