Information

Situated on the Connie Sue Highway approximately 30 kilometres south of Parallel No.1 Road, Cooper Bore sports a brand new solar pump and small tank atop the bore filled with clear sweet water. This recent innovation is a welcome one, not that we needed water and no doubt a boon to travellers on the route. The bore was capped with a submersible pump lowered into the bore casing. A 130 watt solar panel sat above the small tank providing power and no doubt a float valve type arrangement operated the pumps when needed. Good thinking and hats off to those who made it happen.

July 2018 - Area around Bore burnt off during scrub fire. Bore still operating but appears auto shut-off is not working, so bore flowing continuously. - Mick O

Sept 2018 - Pump running all the time at 300 mL/sec so a bit of overflow giving the birds a drink.
