VOCADEX: 81 9648 DARWIN, N,T. 5794 IN REPLY QUOTE 84/368 13 June 1985 /'/24191Direct or 4{' Water R~s~es Division Depart~-;f Mines & Energy GPO Box 2901 DARWIN NT 5794 RE: GROUNDWATER SUPPLIES - ROCKHAMPTON DOWNS AND PAWARINJI (YOUR REF. 4-29-32; 4-18-80; 4-80-1003; HW:NQ:142) My comments on the test results are as follows. ( 1 ) ( 2 ) ( 3 ) Rockhampton Downs RN 23594 The test results for this bore failed to meet current criteria with regard to Total Hardness and the specific conductance indicate fairly heavy mineralisation. If the water is palatable there would be no contra indication on health grounds to equipping the bore. Rockhampton Downs RN 23593 Similar comments apply to this water which exceeds recommended quality criteria with regard to Total Hardness and in its sulphate content. In addition the iron level was initially high. I would make the same comments as for the previous bore. Pawarinji RN 14077 In the absence of feasible alternative supplies, although the nitrate level is slightly high, this bore could be equipped following the usual conditions of consultation with the community. Fluoride level is acceptable.
