Paterson, B.R. 1976 Engineering geological appraisal of Pukawa subdivision, Lake Taupo. Lower Hutt: New Zealand Geological Survey. New Zealand Geological Survey report EG 242 5 p.
Abstract: On Tuesday 9 December 1975 Mr R.M. Priest of Waikato Valley Authority visited the Turangi Office of the NZ Geological Survey to discuss geological aspects of a subdivision at Pukawa, Lake Taupo. A site inspection was made by Messrs. B.R. Paterson of NZ Geological Survey and R.M. Priest the following morning. Later on Thursday 18 December 1975, after it had become known that an early date had been set for a Specified Departure Hearing (January 29 1976) a further site inspection was made by Messrs. R.M. Priest and J. Hunter Young of Waikato Valley Authority and Mr B.R. Paterson. At this time a verbal request was made to the NZ Geological Survey for a written Geological Report; this was subsequently confirmed by letter (18 December 1975). The following is an assessment of the geology of the area judged on observations made during these two visits. (auth)
