SEEET 5164. 1:100,000. Grid Reference: 366 - 395. Client: AES. KATHERINE. Reference: Purpose: DOMESTIC. ******************************************************************************** RECOMMENDATION Pumping Rate: 4 lis. Pump Setting: 25 m below Ground Level. General recommendations are given on the reverse side. The aquifer and bore cannot sustain higher pumping rates with deeper pump settings or for short periods in favourable seasons. Further advice can be obtained from: [In all correspondence please refer to bores RN number} Water Resources, SASCO Eouse, DARWIN NT. ******************************************************************************** BORE DATA Finished depth: 35.69 Standing Water Level: Construction details: Interval o - 6.00m o - 28.29m 28.29 - 30.33m 30.33 - 36.34m m. Completion Date:15f6/91. Test Date 11.95 m. on 12f6/91 Test Rates Test Duration ; Description 203mm ID. steel caSing. 156mm ID. steel caSing. 146mm ID. SIS. screen 156mm ID. steel sump. 19/6/91: 4 LIs. 5 hrs. Imm aperture. Notes: 1. 2. 3. Top of casing as constructed was 0.9 m above ground. All depths are measured from natural ground level. WARNING: Test rates are not indicative of safe long term pumping rates. MINIMUM INTER.l'lAL BORE DIAMETER IS 146 mm Nominal Size. ******************************************************************************** COMMENTS 1. The above recommendatioms are based on a ser~es of tests at 4 l/s for 5 hrs and assume hydrological conditions remain constant. 2. Provision to obtain water samples at bore head should be incorporated in the reticulation. 3. Provision to monitor water levels should be provided when equipping this bore. 4. For rates less than 4 l/s., a pump setting of 18m. would be adequate. ******************************************************************************** WATER QUALITY See water laboratory report Analysis No 9l/92/(]!)I1F Prepared by: P REES TO.l boredata2
