Please do not use your bore water
Groundwater (bore water) in the upper 4 Quaternary aquifers is contaminated and should not be used for any purpose. The depth of the known contamination extends from 0–60 m below ground level.
This prohibition does not extend to Tertiary aquifers deeper than 60 m, such as those used by schools and councils.
Health problems can occur if people come into contact with the contaminated water over a long period of time. The contamination presents a potential risk to human health if groundwater is utilised for drinking, showering, washing, filling swimming pools, watering lawns or irrigating edible produce.
