Abstract

This report details the investigations carried out to assess the potential of storing surface water for stock watering in Bunda Cattle Station. It also recommends the type of surface water storages suitable for the station. The station could be broadly divided into two types of top soil areas. They are fluvial soils of Valley fill type(floodplains), and residual soils (Laterite plains). It can be further subdivided into top soil categories, in relation to surface water runoff and storage. This classification was based on geology, land system, and satellite imagery. This classification is noted in this report as Land Units. Particle size classification was undertaken to confirm the soil type in different land units. It was found that land unit I is the most suitable for excavated tanks, but the location would depend on the depth of soil and its suitability.
