South East Queensland
10.3 Recharge from landscape

Supporting Information

This process occurs in the South East Queensland (SEQ) region, but the volume could not be quantified in a way that is complete, neutral and free from material error due to the lack of both data and a suitable quantification approach.

The 2010–11 year was considerably wetter than the previous decade and although not quantifiable, it would be expected that the groundwater recharge from landscape to be larger in the 2010–11 year than in any year over the previous decade.

The scale of magnitude of recharge from line item 10.3 Recharge from landscape compared to line item 10.4 Recharge from surface water can not be quantified.

This flow is a significant proportion of the groundwater store inflows and would be considered material to the water balance for the groundwater store. Further information may be found in the Groundwater note.
