Two boreholes for potential public water supply were drilled at Annat, by Torridon, from August to September 2004. The boreholes were commissioned by Scottish Water. The project was managed by Galliford Morgan Joint Venture. Advice on borehole siting, construction and testing was provided by the British Geological Survey (BGS). The boreholes were drilled and pumping tests carried out by Drilcorp Ltd. of Seaham, Co. Durham. This report presents geological and hydrogeological data collected during borehole drilling and testing and assesses the hydrogeological characteristics of the borehole and the surrounding aquifer with reference to the suitability of the borehole to provide a public water supply.
