Bore yields are invariably low (less than 1 lit.re per sec) due to 10Ttr perrnea2Jility in the surrounding rocks~ Port (1981) reviewed existing conditions in the area and recommended a borefield manaqement plan be implemented, and that investigation of surface storages begin as soon as possible. 16.
