Bore assessments are required to determine if a water bore is eligible for make good measures.
Bore assessments & make good agreements
Bore assessments are undertaken to assess the capacity of a water bore and to establish whether or not the bore has, or is likely to have, an impaired capacity due to resource activity.
Resource companies undertake bore assessments to determine if make good measures are required as part of a make good agreement with the bore owner.
When undertaking a bore assessment, the resource company will need to collect information on the water bore such as:
details of the bore construction (drill date and drilling company, etc)
photographs, details, condition and rate of the bore pump
purpose and use of the bore
water level and pressure
