Southern Downs residents may be affected by bore testing
RESIDENTS in Killarney and Yangan may be affected over the next two weeks by potential noise generated from scheduled bore pumping tests commissioned by the Southern Downs Regional Council.
Contractors have been engaged by the council to carry out necessary condition assessments and pump tests on several existing SDRC owned bores.
As part of the council's work to establish supplementary water sources in the Southern Downs, two bores will be tested in Yangan.
As water will be pumped from the bores at a constant rate for up to 72 hours to assess the productivity, the council said residents might be affected by noise generated from the testing.
A spokesperson said the nature of the testing would require water to flow unrestricted and unable to be recaptured, reused or returned to the bore.
