Summary It has not been until recent times that companies throughout the world have realised the preciousness of a readily available fresh water supply. It is for this reason that such companies are implementing water management schemes to improve the efficiency in which this resource is used. Located 15km north of Townsville the Bohle quarry has provided much of the material for the infrastructure existing throughout the Townsville region. Operational since the Second World War, CSR Readymix is the site's fourth owner. Water is a precious commodity at the Bohle quarry and is used primarily for dust suppression. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations state, less than 4 g/m2/month of dust fallout beyond the boundary of the quarry is permitted.
