South East Queensland
19.1 Evaporation from urban water

Supporting Information

a. Overall

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.

b. Urban precipitation and evaporation

No information on storage surface area was available for wastewater lagoons or uncovered tanks and storage reservoirs that form part of the urban water supply, collection or recycled water supply systems. The surface area of these storages would be minor in comparison to the surface area of storages listed in line item 1.1 Storages. The omission of the precipitation and evaporation volumes affecting these structures is not material for the water balance of the urban water system store. Further information may be found in the System's interactions with the region section of the Urban system note.
