Work continues on the construction of the new bore at Black Springs. The new water storage tank has been delivered and placed and the contractor commenced drilling operations today. On completion of the drilling Council staff will lay the plumbing and install the remaining equipment. A fresh application has been submitted to Natural Resources regarding the relation of the proposed bore at O’Connell. Based on recent information it is proposed to relocate the drilling rig to O’Connell on completion of Black Springs assuming the approval to the new site is received by Council in time.
