The Murdoch University Energy Research Institute (MUERI) has been investigating some of the water supply problems affecting very small and remote aboriginal groups.

The initial work has been dedicated to investigating the means of obtaining water from bores, utilising simple low cost, low maintenance solar powered water pumping equipment. Progress has been significant, with a number of pumps being tested and suitable equipment developed to provide satisfactory water supplies for transient camps and homeland settlements.
