Perth Groundwater

About half of Perth's water supply is drawn from the Gnangara Mound underlying  north western suburbs and outer suburban areas as far as Gin Gin. Currently 150 GL per year is abstracted  for the integrated supply but more is used from shallow sources by market gardens etc.
Perth Water Users has some comments on this resource.
The EPA is moving to shut down some WaterCorp drawings on environmental grounds.
