National Groundwater Archive (NGA) Stored Borehole Distribution

Department of Water and Sanitation

This map has been prepared from borehole records stored in the NGA as at March 2019 totalling 254 080. The bulk of the records were obtained from State-drilled boreholes.

The map does not depict all existing boreholes nor does it reflect the groundwater potential of any area. But you can learn about it from our Harvest Potential Map. Additional information on borehole records stored in the NGA is to be seen here.
