The Prospect Vale Hydrogeological Landscape (HGL) is characterised by an amphitheatreshaped valley with hills and low hills to the south-west south and north-east, a relatively flat valley floor and rises to the north. The HGL underlies Prospect Vale township, and lies east and south of a bend in the South Esk River (Figure 1). This is an area of moderate rainfall (680 mm). This HGL has a large change in relief over short distances and this influences hydrogeological flow paths.
Alluvial sediments overlay Paleogene sediments on the valley floor with weathered Jurassic dolerite forming resistant ridges to the south-west, south and north-east.View Report
