Land Use Impacts

All forms of land use affect sub-surface water quality and water flows. Increasing the intensity of primary industry land uses, the scale of mining operations, and the quantity of wastes applied back on the land all increase risks to groundwater and groundwater dependent ecosystems.

Aqualinc is actively involved in efforts to achieve sustainable economic growth through our consulting and research in areas such as land-based treatment of effluent, diffuse discharge of contaminants to groundwater, and the impacts of mining on water quality and flows.
