It makes sense to make use of the aquifers which lie beneath our feet. The water is often pure, and available when other sources run dry.

However, not all bores are the same, and the quality of the water will vary, depending on the rock through which it percolates, or if there is a contamination source. Some bores can be high in salts or heavy metals, and so it is important to know if it is safe to drink or irrigate. Richmond Water Laboratories can analyse your water to see if it is suitable for your needs. Our Bore Water Suite will test the suitability of your water for drinking, while the Nursery and Irrigation Suite will allow you to see at a glance if you can use your water on your plants.
