Groundwater levels across Southern Victoria

Groundwater levels across Southern Victoria

Groundwater levels are generally stable over the long-term across Southern Victoria but move up and down seasonally.

Gippsland

In the deep aquifers of Gippsland, groundwater levels are steadily declining due to the influence of the energy industry both onshore and offshore.  You can view the groundwater levels in any observation bore by visiting the Gippsland region map page.  Simply add the observation bores layer and click on the bore of interest.  Or you can read more about the groundwater levels in Gippsland by visiting our Groundwater levels in Gippsland page.

Port Phillip & Western Port

In the localised shallow aquifers of the Port Phillip and Western Port region, groundwater level fluctuations can significantly impact on stream flows and users.  You can view the groundwater levels in any observation bore by visiting the Port Phillip & Western Port region map page.  Simply add the observation bores layer and click on the bore of interest.  Or you can read more about the groundwater levels in Port Phillip & Western Port by visiting our Groundwater levels in Port Phillip & Western Port page.

South West

The middle limestone aquifer in the South West enjoys relatively stable groundwater levels due to its very large storage.  You can view the groundwater levels in any observation bore by visiting the South West region map page.  Simply add the observation bores layer and click on the bore of interest.  Or you can read more about the groundwater levels in the South West by visiting our Groundwater levels in the South West page.
