To better understand the geochemical properties, recharge rates and recharge mechanisms of groundwater.

The aims of this project will sample and analyse groundwater in the Beetaloo Sub-basin, and create a set of baseline data against which any potential impacts caused by the gas industry can be measured. It will provide information about the baseline geochemistry and groundwater flow characteristics in the Cambrian Limestone Aquifer.
