be achieved if construction is undertaken early in the Dry while soil is still moist. Every 100mm layer of loose soil should be compacted. For 3 days' water supply from a turkeys' nest the following dimensions are recohmended: NUMBER OF CATTLE INNER DIAMETER AT BASE (m) INNER DIAMETER AT TOP (m) HEIGHT (m) 200 6 13 1.1 500 8 16 1.5 These figures are based on sides with a 1 in 2.5 slope. 3. Modifying Waterholes Modifying a waterhole usually means constructing a narrow excavated tank within the waterhole to increase its storage capacity. Site investigations are critical. If the subsoil is impermeable, non-dispersive, and there is no rock within 2 m depth then excavation should be possible using a scraper. The presence of rock will usually require the use of rippers for excavation. The longitudinal batter could be 1 in 3 or less, while the cross sectional batter should not be more than 1 in 2.
