17.4 Leakage to landscape
This line item represents leakage from surface water storages and river channels in the Melbourne region to the landscape.
A volume was not recognised in the water accounting statements because quantification techniques were not sufficiently accurate to represent the volume. Leakage from surface water is not thought to be a significant volume and its omission does not have a material impact on the 2011 Account.
This line item corresponds to line item 14.3 Leakage from connected surface water store reported in the 2010 Account. This line item was also unquantified in the 2010 Account.
