The Burren Junction Bore Bath was first sunk in 1921. Water ran from the bore into a series of bore drains (ditches) which distributed the water around the district for various agricultural and domestic uses. In late 2006 the water from the bore was restricted and the bore drains closed in response to public pressure to conserve water and reduce the negative environmental impact of the bore drains on local soil quality. The water now runs into the pool from the bore and then out into the holding pond where it evaporates into the air. If the evaporation pond fills up the bore flow must be turned off until the water level goes down.
