RATION!'I..LE AND CO.O!r<lENTS 242 BOh~RBIRD WATERHOLE:- This is located near the source of Magela Creek, and is situated upon the escarpment. This is used as the major control point for the Hagela Creek. It is however an aboriginal sacred site and fairly inaccessible. It is a permanent waterhole. This site was first sampled by WD ES in NO't)"ember, 1978 as recornrnended by the 1978 Jabiru Workshop. It was sampled regularly by llRB from June, 1971 to May, 1978. The gauging station was established in November, 1971. Some ~l'IEC samples were taken at this site. 1224 ARNHEM BORDER SITE:- This is on Hagela Creek upstream of Ranger site at the Arnhem Land Border. It is expected to give a measure of the water quality of C-'Iagela Creek before passinr:r by the Ranger site. Water is present at this site 7-8 months of the year and flow is present 5-7 months of the year. This site was first sampled by WD ES in January, 1979 (first flow) as recommended by the 1978 Jabiru ~lorkshop. It was not sa-npled by \'IRB or Ai\.EC. The gauging station was established in November, 1978. 58 HAGELA CREEK, DOiiNSTREMl RANGER:- This site is lmmediately downstream of the Ranger site, and may be used to detect any pollution entering the ~1agela from the mine site. Discharge is not continuous throughout the year, and the site may be sampled approximately 8 months of the year, but flows possibly 5-6 months of the year. This site was first sampled by wu ES in December, 1978 as recon~ended by the 1978 Jabiru Workshop. It was sampled regularly by WRB from July, 1971 to March, 1976. The gauging station was established in September, 1971.
