Country Overview

1.1.1.WATER RESOURCES Australia’s water resources are highly variable, and range from heavily regulated working rivers and groundwater resources through to rivers and aquifers in almost pristine condition. On average, 90 per cent of rainfall is directly evaporated back to the atmosphere or used by plants; only 10 per cent becomes runoff into rivers or recharge into groundwater aquifers. This runoff and recharge is highly variable, resulting in significant differences in water availability across Australia. Groundwater makes up nearly one-fifth of Australia’s ‘sustainable’ water resources. In 2004-05, total runoff was estimated at 242.8km3 and total groundwater recharge at 49.2km3. This gives a total inflow to Australia’s surface and groundwater resources of 292km3 (10 per cent of rainfall). Based on these figures, runoff to rivers made up 83 per cent of total inflows, and groundwater recharge accounted for 17 per cent. Runoff is not evenly distributed across the country. In 2004-05, more than 60 per cent of Australia’s total runoff was in Australia’s three northern drainage divisions: -Gulf of Carpentaria drainage division (62.1km3); -Timor Sea drainage division (50.2km3); -North-East Coast drainage division (40.2km3); In contrast, the Murray-Darling Basin was relatively dry, accounting for only six per cent of Australia’s runoff in 2004-05. There are 501 large dams in Australia. In 2004-05 the total storage capacity of these dams was 83.8km3. In addition to large dams, there are more than two million farm dams across Australia. These dams are estimated to have a total storage capacity of 8km3. Groundwater makes up approximately 17 per cent of Australia’s ‘sustainable’ water resources. Much of Australia’s groundwater is drawn from the Great Artesian Basin – the largest groundwater reserve of its type in the world. It covers 22 per cent of the Australian continent and contains water that is up to two million years old. Determining how much groundwater is available is difficult. Compared to surface water systems, we know little about groundwater systems and, in many areas across Australia, surface water and groundwater resources are physically connected (for example, a lake might recharge a groundwater system, or groundwater might keep a river flowing when it is not raining).

1.1.2.WATER USE Water consumption in 2004-05 was 18.8km3. The sectors of the economy that used this water were: •agriculture: 65 per cent (12.2km3); •household: 11 per cent (2.1km3); •water supply industry: 11 per cent (2.1km3); •other industries (including electricity and gas): 7.4 per cent (1.3km3); •manufacturing: 3 per cent (0.6km3); •mining: 2 per cent (0.4km3). Of the water used by agriculture, most was used for irrigation of crops and pastures. Household water consumption equates to 104m3 of water per person per year, or 0.29m3 per person per day. Due to dry conditions and limited water availability, water consumption in Australia decreased by nearly 3km3, or 14 per cent, between 2000-01 and 2004-05. Over the same period: •agricultural consumption was down 23 per cent, largely due to the reduction in rice and cotton crops; •household consumption decreased 8 per cent, to 103m3 per person; •household use of reused or recycled water increased from 11 per cent to 16 per cent; •mining industry water use increased by 29 per cent, due to increased levels of mining activity, particularly in Western Australia; •nearly all (90 per cent) of the water used for agriculture in 2007-08 was used for irrigation. Pastures and crops used for grazing continued to be the largest users of irrigated water (26 per cent). Other high irrigation users were cereal crops for grain and seed, excluding rice, which used 15 per cent of irrigation water, and sugar cane, which used nearly 14 per cent. Rice was the most heavily irrigated crop in 2007-08, in terms of the volume of water applied per unit area. The application rate for rice was almost four times the national average rate across all crops and pastures. Cotton was the crop with the second highest irrigation rate.

1.2.WATER QUALITY, ECOSYSTEMS AND HUMAN HEALTH Australia’s major environmental problems are: soil erosion from overgrazing, industrial development, urbanization, and poor farming practices; soil salinity rising due to the use of poorquality water; desertification; clearing for agricultural purposes, which threatens the natural habitat of many unique animal and plant species; increased shipping and tourism, which threatens the Great Barrier Reef off the northeast coast, the largest coral reef in the world; limited natural fresh water resources. The National Water Quality Management Strategy (NWQMS) provides the information and tools to help communities manage their water resources to meet current and future needs. It provides policies, a process and a series of national guidelines for water quality management. The Water Country Overview - Australia Quality Management Framework includes a step-by-step approach to planning, implementing and managing water quality for each area, plus information about common environmental stressors. More than 80 per cent of the river length that was assessed across Australia was affected by catchment disturbance. The least affected reaches were in Tasmania and the Northern Territory. Hydrologic change could be assessed in only 25 per cent of the river length, due to a lack of data. In about 20 per cent of the regulated river length that was assessed, the flow regimes were largely unmodified from an ecological perspective. Stream habitat was modified from pre-European conditions in more than half of the river length that was assessed. Degradation of the habitat was considered to be largely because of changes in the sediment loads that alter channel morphology and loss of riparian vegetation. Scores for habitat were lowest in New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia. Nutrients and suspended sediment loads were higher than pre-European settlement conditions in more than 90 per cent of the river lengths assessed, and are substantially modified in at least one third of the river length that was assessed in every state and territory, except Tasmania. Based on the 2001 Assessment of Murray-Darling Basin River Health Condition, the following observations were made: •10 per cent of river length was identified as severely impaired, having lost at least 50 per cent of the types of aquatic invertebrates expected to occur there; •more than 95 per cent of the river length assessed had an environmental condition that was degraded and 30 per cent was substantially modified from the original condition; •most reaches in the central and western part of the Basin were moderately modified; •all groups of reaches in the Basin had disturbed catchments and modified water quality; •many parts of the Basin were threatened by multiple stresses, principally land use changes, damaged riparian vegetation, poor water quality, increased bedload, and modified hydrology
