Groundwater Applications

Groundwater is the water found underground in the cracks and spaces in soil, sand and rock. It is stored in and moves slowly through geologic formations of soil, sand and rocks called aquifers.

In Australia, groundwater makes up approximately 17 per cent of accessible water resources and accounts for over 30 per cent of our total water consumption. Some groundwater is fresh and can be used for drinking. Other groundwater can be brackish water or even saltier than the sea. (Source Australian Government Website)

Industries Supplied

How is groundwater extracted?

Depending on the permeability of the rocks containing the groundwater, and the pressure under which groundwater is held, the ease of groundwater extraction can vary significantly. Groundwater is also often withdrawn for agricultural, municipal, and industrial use by constructing and operating wells and bores. 

Both water quality and aquifer yield determine whether groundwater is appropriate for human consumption, stock water supplies, irrigation, or mining uses. The salinity and yield characteristics of groundwater resources vary considerably across the continent.

Bores & Wells Options

Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment designs, supplies, maintains and repairs pumping systems suitable for use with bores and wells. Please visit our Bores & Wells page for more information.

Testing Groundwater

It is important that after drilling a bore and finding water you test the water quality to qualify it for use. Some bore water can contain high levels of dissolved chemicals, rendering it unsuitable for human consumption or stock water supplies.

Water Treatment Options

Dowdens supply, install and maintain a full suite of residential, agriculture and industrial water treatment options for water extracted from groundwater aquifers. Please visit our Purion, Atlas Filtri pages for more information.
