Groundwater History

Aquifer: Appleby Gravel Unconfined Aquifer

Catchment: Wai-iti

Zone: Wai-iti Dam Service Zone

Period of analysis: 12 July 2001 to 31 December 2016

Comment: This bore is principally for monitoring groundwater recharge in relation to the water release from the Wai-iti Dam at Kainui. The dam releases water into the Wai-iti River above Belgrove and this water recharges the adjoining aquifer downstream all the way to below Brightwater township. This is one in a series of bores measuring the effectiveness of the release and also helps to decide on volumes of release to keep groundwater levels up.
