Abstract

As a result of abnormal rains in 1950, a considerable body of water has been impounded in Lake George, situated in New South Wales, but only 20 miles north of Canberra, Australian Capital Territory. Local reports claim a depth of water of 30 feet in the Lake and these reports have prompted the Advisory Council of the Australian Capital Territory to investigate the possibility of developing the lake as a recreational resort. As a first step in this investigation the Council has asked the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics for an opinion as to how long a considerable body of water may be retained in the lake.
