Drilling under way at Lake Albert

almost 4 years ago

Groundwater investigation works at Lake Albert will commence today (Thursday 10 December) in a partnership project between Council and Wagga Wagga Boat Club.

In June, Council resolved to allocate funding to investigate potential groundwater sources to supplement Lake Albert’s water level. This work is being overseen by Wagga Wagga Boat Club.

A possible water source has been identified within the Lakehaven Drive Reserve and a contractor has been engaged to drill a test bore.

The drilling is scheduled to begin Thursday 10 December and will take four to five days to complete. Works will be carried out between 7am to 6pm weekdays and 7am to 5pm Saturday, with no drilling taking place on Sunday 13 December.
