Drill strikes water By JOEL MAXWELL The council is running at two- from-three in its river recharge bore investigations, a report to councillors has revealed. With three of the planned six bores drilled, two have struck water: producing a potential combined flow of up to half the volume needed to recharge the Waikanae River. In a report to councillors, pro- ject manager Phillip Stroud said drilling to about 95 metres at Greendale Dr was completed in September. Initial analysis . . . indicates that this location would be suita- ble for a production bore. Drilling at Ngarara Rd also struck water, with the two suc- cessful sites having a combined flow of between 40 to 60 litres per second. The river recharge scheme, which will pump groundwater into the river to recharge it downstream from the council water take, needs a combined flow of 120 litres per second from one, or all, of the bores. An earlier drill site at Greenhill Rd struck bedrock -- not water. Drilling has started on a fourth investigative bore at Ken- sington Dr in Peka Peka and is currently at a depth of 20m and is expected to be completed by the end of November. Meanwhile the council is negotiating land sales at the site of the potential Maunga- kotukutuku Dam. Mr Stroud said one of the owners, Ikaham Holdings, has given an acceptable sale price but would prefer to sell its total land parcel rather than just the section required for the dam. Potential time delays due to the complex nature of a partial purchase could be reduced if the complete parcel of land was pur- chased, he said. Mr Stroud does not say how much increasing the land purchase would cost. The council will confirm the water recharge project in June next year, subject to the results of the drilling investigations which are scheduled to be com- pleted by February. It has spent about $3 million during the past two financial years on the pro- ject, and has budgeted about $9m including land purchases over the next three years. Community use sorted By JOEL MAXWELL Councillors will today approve the conditions for its $65,000 grant to the Otaihanga Boating Club as it looks to learn from its Paekakariki Tennis Club stoush. The tight conditions spell out community access -- following a belated council showdown with the tennis club earlier this year over public access to the council- owned courts. Under the agree- ment presented to councillors today, the Otaihanga clubhouse will be available for community use from Monday to Thursday; and at least half of the time between 5pm and 10pm on those days. The clubhouse will also be available to the community on weekends but only when not booked for private functions. Meanwhile, under the agree- ment the community use char- ges would initially be set at a maximum of $28 per hour, with an ongoing cap set for the 10 years of the agreement.
