Alluvial aquifers are formed from particles such as gravel, sand, silt and/or clay deposited by physical processes in river channels or on floodplains. These deposits store and transmit water through intergranular voids. In floodplain environments these alluvial aquifers may have groundwater flow systems ranging from a local (e.g. a few kilometres) to regional (e.g. hundreds of kilometres) scale.
