Some of these bores are station owned, and several of these are equipped, requiring special attention to see that water levels are static before measurement, and that no damage is done to pumping equipment in taking water levels. I In addition, there are approximately 30 bores currently - monitored for water level in the Ti-Tree township/farm C area in the north-west of the basin. This monitoring program requires review to identify bores which should continue to be monitored for regional data, and for more detailed information to be used for assessment of town supply/farms area at Ti-Tree. This review should be programmed to take place in the near future, and should look to minimising on-going costs while maintaining a satisfactory level of data for on-going assessment. There is also a requirement for a monitoring bore in the south-western portion of the basin, and if records show there is no existing bore able to be used for this purpose one should be drilled. More detailed water level monitoring is required in the Territory Grape Farm area, and the current recording of water levels around the farm on a monthly basis should continue, but be subject to annual review. Bores in this more intensive program are: RN 13928 RN 14189 RN 14190 RN 14191 RN 14192 RN 14408 RN 14409 RN 14410 RN 14411 RN 14852 RN 14854 RN 14855 B. WATER QUALITY MONITORING Samples should be collected from the production bores at Territory Grape Farms and Central Australian Produce (at least) annually for chemical analysis.
