Integrating Groundwater into the Urban Water Cycle

Project Overview

One of aims of this project is to evaluate the outcomes of an investigation in 2005 that considered the potential constraints to urban development from shallow water tables in a wider urban growth area, with Cranbourne West at its Western edge. This investigation highlighted the potential for the occurrence of shallow groundwater to be a risk for parts of the Casey Cardinia growth corridor; Cranbourne West was one area identified at high risk. The City of Casey is already in the process of developing a long term urban growth plan for Cranbourne West and it is essential that the growth plan addresses the questions and issues raised in the SKM report.

This project provides essential hydrogeological data on which to base appropriate stormwater and groundwater management so that urban salinity in the area can be avoided.
