NEW bores have now been in-
stalled Amengernterneah and
Pungalindum on the Utopia
Homelands, ensuring a sustain-
able water supply for residents.
An existing bore at Amengernterneah
collapsed earlier this year, leaving the
Barkly Regional Council to cart water
into the area for several months.
The 30-year-old bore was corroded and
poorly constructed when it was first built
however the new bore has been made
from stainless steel casing and included
other recommendations by a hydro-
geologist to avoid another collapse.
A second bore was drilled nearby, pump
tested and capped in order to ensure water
security into the future. And while the
drill rig was in the region, a bore was
also drilled at the Pungalindum outstation
because the community had been without
a sustainable water supply for nearly a
year and relied on carted water.
Minister for Community Services, Bess
Price, said investigating possible options
for the bores was a process that needed to
be done correctly to ensure there was a
reliable water supply well into the future.
“This government understands the
importance of a secure, ongoing water
supply and worked hard to make sure the
new bores were built to a high standard to
avoid another collapse,” Mrs Price said.
“This is great news for the people of the
“Anyone who has lived in a desert
region will appreciate the importance of
consistent, long term access to water.”
Ms Price said her Government had
worked hard to provide critical water
infrastructure for people living in remote
