Clifton from the air

This project will test the likelihood of artesian bore water being able to contribute to the existing Clifton town water system. The scope includes:

  1. The drilling of a test hole and depending on the findings of the test hole
  2. The design and construction of an artesian water bore.

Start date

December 2020.

Target completion date

June 2021


An extension to this project or the commencement of another project, along with the additional budget, will be required if a reasonable supply is found. Additional steps would need to include the purchase and installation of a suitable pump, installation of power and telemetry, design and construction of supporting infrastructure (tanks and pipes).


Clifton long-term town water solutions

Several long-term solutions are being progressed in parallel for our Clifton town water system.

Prior investigations into options for access to private bores via an expression of interest in December 2019 and again in early 2020 have not returned any workable options to date.
