A lack of understanding of the regional water balance is still a fundamental knowledge gap limiting the water allocation planning process for the Lower Limestone Coast Prescribed Wells Area (LLC PWA). A regional scale three-dimensional numerical groundwater flow model of the Lower South East region of
South Australia, and in particular of the LLC PWA, is required to:
Phase 1 of the South East Regional Water Balance project is the first component of a longer-term research program to develop a regional water balance model for the LLC PWA. It has involved:
The key outcome of this project was that the basis to build the regional groundwater model for the South East region of South Australia was established.
