Second report on the possibilities of underground water at Piney Creek, Block 10, Stromlo district, ACT

On 21st November, 1944, a visit was made to the above block at the request of the lessee (Mr. G.D.C. Tanner) who had asked for advice regarding water supply. The report following this visit recommended the testing of an alluvium-filled basin which occupies part of the southeastern quarter of the block. Subsequently Mr. Tanner sank a well at a site about 1,000 feet south of the point indicated as most favourable. For all practical purposes it may be considered that the well has proved that the alluvium is not capable of yielding a useful supply of water at the end of a dry period, and it became necessary to consider the possibility of obtaining water from the bedrock. The present report embodies results of a further examination with this end in view. The location, topography, geology, and possibility of underground water at Block 10 are discussed in this report. A geological sketch map of Block 10 is included.
