Bore water treatment systems

Bore water treatment systems, Water from private bores can be a valuable resource as it can contribute to your yearly water needs particularly to irrigate garden areas. However, experience has shown that bore water may be contaminated by micro-organisms and chemicals.

Just like rivers found on the earth’s surface, water in aquifers can flow in a particular direction and as it moves through the ground, it can dissolve minerals or chemicals and transport pesticides and micro-organisms.

It is possible for the chemicals and microbiological properties of bore water taken from an Brore water treatment systems at varying depths or from different aquifers at identical depths not to be the same. As the water in an aquifer is constantly moving it is also possible for the chemical and microbiological quality to change over time.

Most domestic bores obtain water from shallow unconfined aquifers that are neither located in controlled areas nor protected from surface contamination. Hence at least simple bore water treatment systems may required.

Bores operated by licensed water providers such as the Water Corporation for drinking water are protected from contamination as they are located:
  • within Bore water treatment systems (mostly at depth);
  • In areas with restricted development and land usage; and
  • Are controlled by catchment management plans.

Why Bore water treatment systems are necessary?

Bore water can be naturally contaminated by minerals, chemicals, bacteria and viruses. However, human activity usually has the greatest impact upon shallow ground water quality as a result of:
  • Has a pH greater than 5;
  • Is colourless and odourless; and
  • Will only be used to water the garden, wash cars and flush toilets.
    • Excessive or inappropriate use of fertilizers, animal manures, pesticides and insecticides;
    • Poorly maintained septic tanks and other liquid waste disposal systems;
    • Leaking fuel and chemical tanks;
    • Intensive agriculture, industry or mining;
    • Leaching from waste disposal areas; and
    • Accidental spills of chemicals
