Attention to the following points will ensure a long and safe life for the bore supply and help prevent pollution of the groundwater resource. 1. Construct a concrete apron around the bore head to prevent surface flow, seepage and waste from entering the bore. 2. Seal the space between the casing and pump equipment to prevent entry of vermin, dirt and pollutants. 3. prevent spillage of fuel and oil on the ground around the bore. Store fertilizer and other chemicals at least 50 m. away. 4. Keep stock away from the bore head. Discourage domestic activity at the bore. 5. If the bore is no longer required the casing is to be securely capped. IN ADDITION, please ensure that the BORE IDENTIFICATION TAG is retained securely at all times. The registered bore number is water Resources Division's only reference to the scientific and engineering data on this bore and hence important to ~ffiD's further advice to bore owners.
