Water resource management
Water resources are exploited for industrial and agricultural production from both groundwater (aquifers) and surface water sources - rivers and streams, lakes and reservoirs, water recycling and rainwater harvesting systems.
Water resource management planning and licencing uses hydrogeological and hydrological sciences for forecasting and modelling to conserve resources and meet demand.
The Openfields library holds materials on management and planning for the use of ground and surface water resources.
