Do we need to locate a suitable bore site or can you do it for us?

Locating a suitable site for a water bore hole and ensuring suitable access is really the land owners responsibility. TWB will construct the new bore in the location as specified by you. We can assist with this decision by providing information such as depths, quantities and quality on existing bores already drilled in your area. Water divining could be used to select a site and help increase the chances of obtaining water.

Do you offer a guarantee in relation to the bore constructed, the quantity and quality of the water?

Yes, we do guarantee the quality of our workmanship. We construct our water bores with suitable materials of a high standard to ensure long life. No drilling company can guarantee the quantity or quality of the water that may be obtained but we do estimate the flow rate. We also test for conductivity. The yield of the water bore can be estimated during construction, either by bailing or airlift pumping. We recommend you perform a complete water analysis before equipping the bore.

Is it important to choose a drilling company that have Queensland licensed drillers?

Yes, it is, as Queensland is part of a national licensing system for water bore drillers. This helps protect groundwater resources, ensures all drillers are properly skilled and their work meets construction standards. Landholders must ensure they employ only licensed water bore drillers whose work meets the minimum standards.

Are there any set standards of constructing a water bore in QLD?

The water bore industry is regulated by various acts, standards & guidelines, many of which are based on international standards. The design, drilling, construction, maintenance & decommissioning of water bores in Australia are guided by the “Minimum Construction Requirements For Water Bores In Australia”, which was first published in 1997. In QLD it is mandatory to work under the Water Act 2000.
