About the Topic

Activities that impact groundwater
Describes three main activities that can affect the availability of groundwater – over-pumping, contamination and coal seam gas extraction.


Contaminants in Aquifers
Looks at how contamination affects groundwater (research, with a practical option).

Game: Gnasty Gnomes in the classroom
Suggests some ways the "Gnasty Gnomes" game can be used to explore key concepts in contamination management.

Case Studies

CS4 - Botany Sands Aquifer, Sydney NSW
Describes the history of development and current challenges of the shallow Botany Sands Aquifer in Sydney.

CS14 -Coal Seam Gas Water Management
Coal seam gas development in the Surat Basin provides a great case study of the water management issues associated with this emerging industry in Australia.

CS24 - Latrobe aquifer challenges, Victoria
This case study helps consider the scenario of unexpectedly finding a remote industry accessing an aquifer system is affecting other aquifer users. The case study is presented as snapshots in time: the situation in 2005 and 2012 from technical, legal and socio-economic perspectives.

CS36 - Groundwater resources of North China
The North China Plain is one of the most densely populated and agriculturally productive areas of the world. However, the climate is dry, and the surface water is comparatively scarce. How is this area also one of the major producers of grain crops for the world’s most populous nation? The answer is groundwater. The North China Plain lies above a major aquifer, which is probably the world’s most intensively exploited groundwater aquifer system.

Fuel spill impacts on groundwater, Avalon Victoria
When a high pressure fuel transport pipe leaks, large volumes of fuel can contaminate the groundwater. In this case study, a small leak resulted in thousands of litres of fuel forming a pool of fuel mix floating on the watertable. This case study looks at how this was managed.
