SOUTHERN REGION FIGURE 6: LOCATION OF SOUTHERN REGION COMMUNITIES Recharge into groundwater aquifers in the Southern region is believed to be slow and sporadic with long residence times for water in the aquifers. As a result, the groundwater in the region is characterised by high total dissolved solids and high hardness levels, which impact the palatability of the water and can cause moderate to severe scaling problems with infrastructure. Disinfection of the water supplies is achieved using both calcium hypochlorite and sodium hypochlorite. In 2008-09, sodium hypochlorite systems were installed in Haasts Bluff, Nyirripi and Papunya. It is proposed that the remaining communities in the Southern region using calcium hypochlorite be replaced with automatic sodium hypochlorite and UV systems in 2009-10, Power Stations Transmitted Power Supply Sewerage Services Water All the above communitieshave reticulated supply(These centres recieve their Electricityby line from adjacent centres.) 22 power and water corporation
