Classification of groundwater conditions at the watershed scale
synthesizes landscape hydrology, provides a mapped summary of groundwater
resources, and supports water management decisions. The application of a
recently developed watershed-scale groundwater classification methodology is
applied and evaluated in the 100,000 hectare lower
