1.4 Lakes and wetlands

Supporting information

The volume of water within lakes and wetlands, such as floodplain wetlands, that are associated with the surface water store, could not be adequately quantified.

Wetlands in the Daly region receive inflows and fill up during the wet season (October–April) and then proceed to dry out due to evaporation during the dry season (May–September). As the dry season coincides with the start and end of the reporting period, the amount of water stored in lakes and wetlands at 30 June 2012 does not have a material impact on this water accounting report.
