The following document comprises of an in-depth report of how the thesis topic of “Investigations into Cambooya’s water supply system with respect to local contributing bores” was completed. The problem and the solution are outlined in the project aims and objectives are defined. After this, background information on the topic and available literature are discussed. The literature section includes discussions on modeling software, council data and papers written in similar fields that are applicable to this thesis.

A methodology for this project has been included in section 3 and defines the processes involved in collecting the required data to complete the model and completing the physical data collection activities.

After the methodology section, results, discussions, recommendations and conclusions have been made. Throughout these sections it was determined that Cambooya’s current water supply network is performing adequately in accordance with SEQ Water and Sewerage Guidelines. However, at periods where groundwater levels are peaking the water pressure exceeds that which is set out in these guidelines. It was recommended that a control system should be implemented to limit the George Street Bore when required, during periods of high groundwater levels.
