Groundwater quality monitoring
A focus of Barwon Water’s groundwater quality monitoring program is to assess movement of water between the different aquifers in Anglesea and the potential for saline intrusion given the proximity to the coast.
Of the 42 observation bores in our Monitoring and Assessment Program (MAP), 17 focus on monitoring groundwater quality for salinity, temperature and pH on a monthly basis. Twice a year, we conduct additional laboratory sampling, which also includes major Cations, Anions and Bromide.
On a weekly basis, we also monitor the operating production bores for groundwater quality.
