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 due to a lack of data.

Wetlands in the Ord region receive flows and fill up during the wet season (October–April) and then proceed to evaporate during 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.
