Abstract: Water availability and management has always been a key issue for pastoralism in the arid and semi-arid regions. Recent drought conditions throughout Australia have highlighted the need to seek new and innovative ways to plan for future challenges in water supply management. This handbook aims to be an initial source of information for pastoralists. It details important considerations for stock water delivery and outlines technologies which can reduce the cost of water delivery and storage. The handbook details siting a new bore, equipping a bore, grazing impacts of a bore, animal water requirements, water storage and water point monitoring.
