Macumba catchment recharge

There is very little information regarding surface water – groundwater interactions in the Macumba catchment. Recent work has demonstrated that the Alberga River and Stevenson Creek have limited recharge potential (Love at al., 2013). Observational evidence suggests that the upper Macumba catchment has shallow groundwater, which impacts the persistence of key waterholes in the catchment (cf Section, though further work is necessary to confirm these observations.
