Indigenous knowledge and methodologies are a missing component in water management in Australia. On this dry, flat, and ancient continent, Traditional Knowledge has been passed on from generation to generation for millennia (over 65,000 years). This is a profound reliance on knowledge of surface and groundwater, which has been critical to ensure the survival of Indigenous peoples in a dry landscape through the role of traditional knowledge in finding and protecting water places.

WRRC Brown Bag Webinar: A Living River – The Santa Cruz Rive...
The Santa Cruz River has long been the backbone of the region’s natural and cultural heritage. Although the river has changed since humans first arrived in the region 12,000 years ago, the river still exists and is a “living” entity that continues to support wildlife and communities along its course. Throughout Arizona, the release of effluent maintains flows of many river reaches. The Santa Cruz River is fortunate to have three stretches with effluent flows—one near Nogales in Santa Cruz County and two near Tucson in Pima County.

A recent UNESCO publication on managed aquifer recharge (MAR) has provided unequivocal evidence that MAR is a sustainable nature-based engineering approach for enhancing climate resilience and other social, economic, and environmental benefits of groundwater.
