Perth Groundwater Atlas

Department of Water (WA Gov’t) Perth Groundwater Atlas https://maps.water.wa.gov.au/#/webmap/gwm

The Perth Groundwater Atlas has been designed to help water-bore drillers, irrigators, and  private householders establish groundwater bores in the watertable (i.e. superficial) aquifer within the Perth metropolitan area.

The aims of the Atlas are to provide information that:

  • indicate which areas are suitable/unsuitable for the development of a groundwater bore within the watertable (superficial) aquifer
  • estimates the depth to the watertable beneath a property
  • estimates the depth to the base of the watertable (superficial) aquifer beneath a property – this is the maximum allowable bore depth permitted without an approved groundwater licence
  • gives an indication of the salinity of the groundwater at the bore site
