A review of hydrogeology of inland shallow drainage systems indicates that most of the prospective alluvial and calcrete aquifers, within feasible distances from carnotite (uranium ore) zones, are expected to have small commandable storages, and hence, limited long-term low-salinity groundwater resources. In order to maintain an optimal water balance in these drainages, it is therefore suggested that for utilization of these resources careful consideration to be given to planning and development of borefield layout and monitoring programs. 16 refs.
