New water supply on Tiri

Date posted: 15-May-2011

Kiwi Well Drillers have spent a working week on the Island drilling a new well.

They have put a bore down to 85m just opposite the Implement Shed. All the sub-soils have been cased off and cemented to 27m which means no impurities can come from the surface. The bore went straight from topsoil to yellow clay then rotten rock and into the weathered greywacke. They struck water at 78m in a natural fracture/aquifer – right at sea level. The water looks clear and tastes good though it might have a slight amount of iron in it.  A solar-powered pump will soon be installed and once it has run for 24 hours a sample will be taken for water quality analysis.

The bore is capable of supplying 5,000 litres/hr though has only been tested to 2,600 litres/hr. The pump will pull 400 litres/hr.
