Drilling a new 30m 4 inch bore in Balcatta for the Karrinyup Men’s Shed

Today we Drilled a new 30m 4 inch bore in Balcatta for the Karrinyup Men’s Shed

The drill was straightforward. We encountered 16m of sand then the remaining depth was Tamala Limestone, Aeolian calcarenite, variably lithified leached quartz sand.

The bore has a groundwater salinity of 398 mg/L TDS and a low risk of iron staining. The PH is slightly alkaline.
