Technical Report WRD92039 Viewed at 15:07:17 on 29/07/2010 Page 72 of 192. specification appears to suit available by the end of 1992. incre,aseC. by 100% as compared available and is constructed of the Its to the requirement, will be claimed accuracy lS transducers currently plastic and ceramics. It is favourable fror1 a security aspect as it can be housed within 50ilL'll casing. Logging of observation bore drawdovm during test pumping should also be met by remote site loggers. Two Cherryville loggers and a 20m vented transducer system compatible with the central loggin<;; system is recommended. In general, any other major purchases should not be made until a definitive policy stating the recommended equipment has be,en made. Contingent and spare parts equipment may be obtained as appropriate. (ii) Securing a testing and workshop facility A basic t'~sting facility requires a bore of at least 25m in depth to enable the prescribed 'standard Tests' and equipment verification procedures to be performed. Instrumentation to effect minor electronic repairs and checks is required. For example, workship servicing needs may include repair to cables and ends, part replacement and re calibration. Battery replacement and internal clock resetting may be accomplished on-site. For remote site water level moni toring f si.milar needs are envisaged and servicing on an 'as required' basis need only be performed. (iii 1 stipulation of procedure for the installation and operation of the equipment on-site and preparation a field operations manual. Documentation specifically stating the installation and opera,tion of the equipment on site will need to be compiled. This will incorporate directions for setting up, movement of the transducer (when necessary), field calibration procedure, logger status monitoring, security, downloading of data and perhaps a "trouble shooting" guide.
