Do not use the bore water in this area
Groundwater (bore water) in this area should not be used for any purpose. Contaminants identified within the area, and include perchloroethene (PCE), trichloroethene (TCE) and its degradation products, dichloroethene (DCE) and vinyl chloride (VC). Additional chemicals of concern are heavy metals, cyanide and petroleum hydrocarbons.
Historical chemical use has resulted in site contamination that affects soils on the source sites, groundwater on the source sites, and groundwater offsite in a west to north-westerly direction. Accessing groundwater adjacent to the contamination can also draw the contaminants towards the site from which it is being pumped.
