Description

The Oolloo Dolostone is a major aquifer in the Daly River catchment. Impacts on the groundwater resource from extraction or changes to the natural recharge regime could have considerable impact on the dry season flows in the Daly River. Groundwater modelling is used here to determine the validity of the conceptual model developed for the Oolloo Dolostone aquifer system. This report presents the development of a numerical groundwater model to provide a method to assess the impacts of development (both due to clearing and extraction) on the groundwater system and the flows in the Daly River.
