Perry, W.J., 1953. Geological survey of Upper Cotter Dam sites A and B1, Australian Capital Territory. Record  1953/108. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Detailed geological investigations were made of two previously selected dam sites, B and A, in the Upper Cotter Valley. Site B1 is geologically suitable for the construction of a dam, but subsequent to the investigation it was found that the storage capacity of this site would be insufficient for Canberra's estimated requirements; hence the site is unlikely to receive further consideration. Site A appears suitable for the construction of a stable dam, though less suitable geologically than site B1. Five recommendations are submitted for consideration.
