Would you like to add a water bore drilling project to your property? This can be a very rewarding feature to add. However, there are a few items that you should be mindful of before you decide to add one.
The Australian government has mandatory requirements in place for water bore drilling projects, and they also recommend several best practices in addition. The mandatory requirements are government necessities, which include the need for a licensed driller as well as a permit.
Obtaining a permit for water bore drilling is one of the biggest challenges that you will face. Before the water bore drilling may commence, a permit must be obtained from the state or territory. This is the responsibility of the client requesting the bore be drilled on the property. This also necessitates a written contract with the bore company to specify the work to be completed and the materials required. A bore permit is also required for projects where you are rehabilitating a bore that has lost its structure over time. This is due to the fact that this would change the shape of the bore.
The location of choice must be compliant with the local regulations, and the driller is responsible for ensuring that the location is compliant. The bore permit also includes restrictions that the driller must adhere to while they are undertaking the drilling operations.
The driller is responsible to confirm the requirements of the water bore drilling permit. Often, these requirements may cover where the bore is allowed to be located. These requirements are often to ensure that the bore is not going to be contaminated with runoff from pollutants.
Once the water bore drilling permit has been assigned, a bore permit number will be assigned to the permit. This is used when collecting the required water samples from the bore, as the bore permit number must be labelled on the samples. In this case, as the client of the drilling operation, you are required to determine the requirements for the analytical methods required in your local area.
For one to be able to drill a water bore, the individual must have the proper licensing to do so. In addition to the licensing necessity, the appropriately licensed individual must be on the site at all times during the drilling operations. The risk of not ensuring that all of the documentation has been established could mean your project is disrupted by local authorities.
