Exceeding the pumping rate will fork the bore which may lead to pump problems. Recommendations for finishing and protecting of bores Attention to the following life for the bore supply groundwater resource. points will ensure a long and and help prevent pollution of (1) Construct a concrete apron around the bore-head approximately 2 m in diameter. safe the (2) Prevent drainage of surface flow and waste water to the bore in the vicinity of the bore.
