Milingimbi, Australia

Status: Complete

Milingimbi is a remote island and has an aboriginal community of about 1,600. Groundwater is the only source for water supply to the community, and at the end of the wet season the resources are scarce and there is a severe risk of saltwater intrusion into the borefield. The project used multiple geophysical and hydrogeological techniques to investigate saltwater intrusion and groundwater dynamics beneath the island.
