30.2 Groundwater discharge into off–channel water store

Supporting information

This line item refers to the volume of water that leaks into off channel water storages within the Canberra region. This process does occur in the Canberra region but the volume could not be quantified due to the lack of both data and a suitable quantification approach. Off channel water storages such as farm dams are often lined, which would limit the amount of groundwater discharged in these storages.
