What is a groundwater monitoring bore? It is a bored water well that exists to determine the nature and property of soil that comes into contact with the water. Monitoring bores also helps provide access to groundwater for level, physical and chemical measurements. Landowners can take out groundwater samples from the monitoring bore and send them to a laboratory for detailed analysis.
Monitoring bores may be necessary on your agricultural, industrial or commercial land to assess any possible changes to the water table levels. If you are relying on a groundwater source for irrigation, livestock, farm animals or indoor use, monitoring bores makes consistent analysis easier.
Groundwater can suffer from contaminated water moving into the water supply, surface pollutants being leeched, waste disposal leaks and more. Such problems can cause minimal or significant disruption to a groundwater supply, which is why monitoring bores is so handy.
