Managing water resources
Water is a precious resource on the Eyre Peninsula. It needs to be managed carefully so that our communities and the environment are sustainable into the future. We are working on a number of ways to managing these resources:
- Water allocation planning for protected water resources in the region
- Processes to manage activities that may affect water resources
- Monitoring the condition of our water resources
- Managing storm water to reduce pollution and for its reuse.
See what happens with water monitoring in our 'Watching Water' (6 mins), an overview of South Australian water monitoring and science, which outlines how these activities support water planning and management across the state. The film discusses groundwater and surface water monitoring and provides access to the State's water data on WaterConnect.
