Virtual Bus Tour: Conjunctive use dewatering bore to address a rising groundwater problem
Case study type
Australian Government Reef Programme
Queensland Government Rural Water Use Efficiency Initiative – Irrigation Futures
A pilot project in the Burdekin is showing promising early signs indicating that conjunctive use dewatering bores could become an effective weapon in helping combat rising groundwater levels.
Funded by the Queensland Government’s Rural Water Use Efficiency - Irrigation Futures initiative, five dewatering bores have been drilled on farms connecting to the Burdekin-Haughton Water Supply Scheme.
Burdekin cane grower, Mark Hatch, has been heavily involved in the project and takes the public through the project he has been working on with Burdekin Productivity Services extension officer Marian Davis.
