High resolution seismic survey of the proposed Beenyup wastewater injection site
MetadataShow full item record
The Beenyup waterwater treatment plant is situated in close proximity to residential properties approximately 20 km north of the central business district of Perth, Western Australia. It is proposed that treated wastewater from the plant will be injectedinto the sub-surface in preference to releasing it to the ocean. In order for this to occur over a long period of time a good understanding of the connectivity of the sub-surface aquifers in the vicinity of the injection site is required. High resolution surface seismic together with VSP data were collected at the site using a high-power impact source. The resulting sub-surface images will provide valuable input to aregional sub-surface flow model and the preliminary results are encouraging. This paper describes the acquisition and processing techniques used in the experimental seismic survey.
