Waterwise

Jurisdiction: Australia

How can we protect and preserve our water resources?

Queensland has roughly 68 large dams, 261 small surface water storage's and 179 large river systems.

Over 60% of Queensland is currently in drought.

The Great Artesian Basin covers 1.7 million sq km and holds 64 cubic kilolitres.

Water demand is increasing with population growth, changes in economic growth and pollution.
