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. (3) Prevent spillage of fuel and oil on the ground around the bore. (4) First tap on the pipeline should not be less than ~ m from the bore-head. (5) Seal the space between casing and pump equipment to prevent ingress of vermin, dirt and pollutants. (6) If the bore should be no longer required, the casi~g is to be securely capped and the bore backfilled. (7) Maintain pumping equipment in good order to prevent pollution. In addition, please ensure that the BORE IDENTIFICATION TAG is retained securely when the bore is equipped. This is best done by setting the bore cap into the concrete surround when it is cut off to allow equipping of the bore. 7 : KARP
