Full description

This assessment and related data examines water resources in the Tasmania region in 2009–10 and over recent decades. Seasonal variability and trends in modelled water flows, stores and levels are considered at the regional level and also in more detail at sites for selected rivers, wetlands and aquifers. Information on water use is provided for selected urban centres and irrigation areas.

It begins with an overview of key data and information on water flows, stores and use in the region in recent times followed by a brief description of the region. Water quality, which is important in any water resources assessment, is not addressed. At the time of writing, suitable quality controlled and assured surface water quality data from the Australian Water Resources Information System (Bureau of Meteorology 2011a) were not available. Groundwater and water use are only partially addressed for the same reason. In future reports, these aspects will be dealt with more thoroughly as suitable data become operationally available.

Key data and information

The assessment presents the 2009–10 annual landscape water flows and the change in accessible surface water storage in the Tasmania region. Higher than average rainfall combined with approximately average levels of evapotranspiration resulted in above average landscape water yield1 for the year.  Soil moisture levels, on the other hand, decreased by six per cent due to local patterns in rainfall and evapotranspiration and soil storage capacities. Surface water storage volumes rose substantially, in line with the landscape water yield result.
