South Burdekin Water Board
The South Burdekin Water Area is a unique groundwater area which is considered the largest coastal aquifer in Australia. Its yield has been managed to develop one of the most highly productive sugar producing areas in the world.
The South Burdekin Water Board is a self-governed body entirely financed by growers and millers in the South Burdekin Area. The board and area was constituted in 1966.
The South Burdekin Water Board’s role is to develop and manage ground water replenishment in the twenty-eight thousand hectare Water Area.
Artificial Recharge means increasing subterranean water supply artificially. Artificial recharge not only adds water to available groundwater supply, but it is also an effective means of disposing of storm water run off.
