Technical Report WRA89053 Viewed at 03:02:00 on 18/02/2010 Page 110 of 139. NOTE ::3 NOTE 39 Infiltration into the Town BaSIn is related more to the duration of flooding rather than the size of the peak now. Thus a slow rele:J.se of water from me dam would be expected :0 lead to greater inl1ltration than a rapid rele:J.se. As the river water is less saline than the town water current! v formmg a major mt10w to the Town Basin a greater infIltration from the river could improve water quality as weil as increase yield for potential irrigation use. Upstream traces below 645 will be partially inundated most of the time. Trees above 645 and below 658 wiii be inundated temporarily with the period of inundation depending on the size of outlet chosen as for inundation of Tnyere Akene.
