Carlos Brieva Project Video


Project overview

Risk of arsenic pollution in drinking water supplies from mine workings in the Tablelands Region of Far North Queensland (FNQ) has been raised as a concern by local and state health authorities. However, it is not completely known, neither connected, the different factors involved in arsenic distribution in the region. Carlos' project has taken the Tableland Regional Council as a study case for investigating the current patterns of arsenic distribution and sources in that region in the context of catchment water flows and drinking water supplies using Geographical Information System tools.
