Bore Water Treatment
Bore Water is ground water that has accumulated in underground aquifers. It results from seepage of surface water through layers of soil and rock to eventually settle as subterranean pockets of water - referred to as aquifers. Some travel for many kilometers with many providing the only source of water for regional communities throughout Australia. Aquifers are most commonly tapped into by the sinking of a bore – some are located relatively close to the surface, many deep below. By definition, ground waters often contain particles of substrate and/ or pollutants with which they’ve been in contact – often for long periods of time.
Typical bore water problems include:
- Staining. (Iron and manganese)
- Low pH. (Acidic compounds)
- Excess Hardness. (Calcium/ magnesium salts)
- Colour. (Iron, manganese and tannins etc)
- Sediment. (Oxidised iron/ manganese and/ or dirt/ mud etc)
- Salinity. (Salt)
- Chemicals. (Chemical pollutants)
- Bacteria. (Coliforms etc)
