The latest data from NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellites has revealed that 21 of the world's largest aquifers in locations from India to China and Australia have passed their sustainability tipping points. Meaning more water is removed than replaced during a decade long study 2003-2013.
Included in the list is the Canning aquifer which extends from North of Broome, down to Port Headland and 1000 kilometres inland.
There is not an infinite water supply said NASA’s senior water scientist Jay Famiglietti.
