Technical Report WRD89069 Viewed at 15:07:59 on 29/07/2010 Page 8 of 16. 4. WATER DEMAND The proposed population of 20 people would require a supply of 0.5 Lis. This calculation is based on 1000 LI cl d. However, pump test data indicates that Bore 26067 could probably meet further water demand up to 8 Lis. 5. RESULTS Bore 26067 has been drilled and constructed with steel casing slotted adjacent to the aquifer zone. Water samples were collected while drilling and pump testing. Discharge rates of up to 8 LI s of potable quality ,vater may be sustainable from Bore 26067. 6. RECOMMENDATIONS It is recommended that: the pump setting for Bore 26067 should be 27 m below ground level for a pumping rate of 8 Lis. septic tanks and absorption trenches should be located a minimum of 100 m from the bore. 015:GDWT3
