Groundwater basics

Field officer Frank Crameri talks with a customer in Koo Wee Rup
Groundwater is complex.  It is out of sight and often described in unfamiliar language. However it is a highly valuable resource with great potential to support the economic, environmental and social needs of our community. It is estimated that groundwater in Southern Victoria contributes approximately $275 million to the State economy every year by supporting agribusiness and industry. Our indigenous and wider communities also place great value on groundwater for cultural and social reasons.
