Drilling of the new Oxford Rural
No.1 well has been successful in striking a deep water source.
The location of the new well,
which has been established on council-owned land 500m west of the McPhedrons
Road/Watsons Reserve Road intersection, was chosen following an extensive
public consultation exercise in March.
The consultation revealed some
concerns with the initially suggested site.
Public feedback brought to light
the fact that the originally proposed location, at the corner of Watsons
Reserve and McPhedrons Road, was close to the site of a historic sheep dip.
This information had not been
documented in local land use records.
The revelation necessitated a
change of plan, with Council obtaining external expert advice which recommended
moving the proposed bore upstream to the new location.
Initial indications suggest the
drilling has tapped into a good water source.
This will now be verified by test
pumping to determine the yield, as well as water quality testing to prove the
security of the source.
