Nye, P.B. & Brown, W.B., 1948. Possibilities of selecting a site of a borehole for the disposal of effluent water from the Commonwealth flax mill, Ballarat, Victoria. Record  1948/014. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The Commonwealth Flax Production Committee conducts a flax mill at Ballarat. The flax is first treated with water and 25,000 gallons per day are used in the process. After the treatment, the water is allowed to run to waste, and is at present being conducted through an earthen drain to natural drainage channels. This disposal of effluent water is not approved by the Ballarat Council, and other means of disposal have to be found. The objective of the present investigation was to determine if another borehole could be suitably sited to dispose of the effluent. The geology of the area, possibilities of disposal, and recommendations are discussed in this report. Two accompanying plates are included.
