Groundwater Science Plan
To address the many issues and challenges confronting the management of water resources in the region, the BWF has developed a set of integrated priorities. In consultation with, Sinclair Knight Merz, these priorities have formed the Lower Burdekin Groundwater Science Plan, which will be used to guide the development, selection and prioritisation of research projects.
The Lower Burdekin Groundwater Science Plan is a critical document as it demonstrates a strategic and integrated approach to addressing the water resource management issues and challenges.
