Dubbo Regional Council has conducted a six hour Step Test of the Riverbank Bore to explore it’s potential to be a viable water supply.
Dubbo Regional Council is investigating a range of water supplies as a component of an integrated response to the continuing drought conditions.
Accessing groundwater supplies for Dubbo is one component of the immediate and long-term water security strategy.
As part of these investigations, a six hour Step Test of the existing Riverbank Bore was required to ensure optimisation for groundwater extraction.
Other watering systems that will be tested include:
- John McGrath Fields
- Bob Dowling Ovals
- Nita McGrath Courts
- Katrina Gibbs
- Hans Clavan Fields
The water required to undertake this test will be utilised on these sporting grounds.
