It is aimed at assisting stakeholders to understand how the changes in groundwater levels affect users and the environment. The project will also generate 3D maps of groundwater in southern Victoria and accompanying interpretative information, which will be available online.

It also demonstrates areas where there is a need for further groundwater data and information," Parliamentary Secretary for Sustainability and Urban Water Senator Don Farrell said.
