Help stop the drop!

After a poor wet season across the Territory, water resources have not been refilled. Groundwater levels in some groundwater systems in the Darwin rural area are at critical levels.

How much water you use today will affect everyone tomorrow, that means everyone must work together to reduce water use.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources has developed tools and information to help everyone do their bit do reduce demand on our groundwater resources.

For more information visit ‘Help stop the drop’. The 'Know your bore' tool will help you understand more about your bore, the water resource you are accessing and whether your bore is at risk of becoming unserviceable.
