Grant-Taylor, T.L. 1967 Groundwater in New Zealand. Lower Hutt: New Zealand Geological Survey. Report NZGS 24 17 p.

Abstract: New Zealand's population of about 2.5 million is mostly concentrated in five cities. The country areas are sparsley populated and NZ farmers are generally dependent on water supplies obtained from the property. The use of groundwater overall is not great, but is increasing. Analyses of groundwater vary according to the geological nature of source beds and latitude, affecting for example chloride, dissolved substances, sodium, pH, carbonate or bicarbonate, and sulphate concentrations. This report considers geological source beds from around NZ, and properties of the water extracted, or likely to be extracted from each. (auth)
