Description / Abstract: Use of water from the Alice Springs Town basin for irrigation of public recreation is encouraged by PAWA. This forms part of a strategy to decrease consumption from, and thereby reduce stress on the Roe Creek Borefield. It should also contribute to a deepening of shallow water table within the town area. A consultancy to examine effective utilisation of Town Basin water was commissioned by PAWA in 1990 and a recommendation was made to construct three irrigation bores. In order to meet this recommendation a total of eight investigations and four production bores were drilled. This report present the outcome of this work.
