Abstract

In June 1980 the Department of Housing and Construction (DHC) completed a report on the proposed water supply iand swerage project for Norfolk Island (Goldfinch & Cross, 1980). This report requested that the Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR) implement the following recommendations: 1. Undertake hydrogeological investigations on Norfolk Island as recommended in a Groundwater reprot on Norfolk Island (Abell, 1976). 2. Undertake investigations, drilling and testing as appropriate to provide observation and production bores in either or both of the Broken Bridge/Mission Creek valleys. A sufficient number of bores are to be drilled so that a production rate of not less than 10.4 L/sec is achieved with at least one bore in exess of minimum requirements to provide standby capacity. Each production bore is to be cased and fitted with screens. The main objective of the survey was a hydrogeological/geophysical investigation in the Broken Bridge - Mission Creek valleys leading to the selection of drill sites and recommendations on drilling to ascertain whether a groundwater supply at deeper levels on the island can be developed free of pollution from human or other agencies.
