Pump setting: 27.0 m below ground ie'lei General recommendations 2re given on the reverse side. Tne aquifer and bore can;a!RlliJKl: sustain higher pumping rates with deep'er pump settings Gf fer short periods in favourable seascns. Further advice can be obtained from: PAVIA, water Directorate (In all correspondence reter to the bores RN number).

Top of casing as constructed was 0.90 m above ground 2. All depths are measured from natural ground level 3. Test rates are not indicative of safe long term pumping rates. WARNING: MINIMUM INTERNAL BORE DIAMETER IS 152. -4 mm COMMENTS 1. The above recommendations are based on a constant rate test at 8 L/s for 8 hours and assume that hydrological conditions remain constant. 2. Provisions should be made when equiping the bore to allow water levels to be monitored while pump is operating. 3. For pumping rates to 5 Lis pump may be set at 16 metres.
