1.4 Lakes and wetlands

Supporting information

Lakes and wetlands connected to the surface water are present in the Adelaide region; however, their volume could not be quantified in a way that is complete, neutral and free from material error.

The volume of water held in these lakes and wetlands is considered to be relatively small in size. While lakes and wetlands do provide significant environmental and recreational benefit and are relevant to the region, the omission of their volume is not expected to have a material impact on the volume reported for the surface water store or the surface water balance.
