Bore Water - Monitoring & Testing

Australia is a very hot and dry country and over recent years water restrictions have been imposed in many cities and towns. In Perth, there are a number of aquifers, allowing both residential and commercial bores to be dug to access this ground water. Due to the requirement to have bore water tested, some of Agrifood Technology’s main customers for water analysis are bore drillers and irrigation specialists who require analysis on both new and existing bore water. As bore water is often high in iron and calcium and/or salinity, water analysis ensures that the bore water can be used efficiently to water plants, trees and lawns.

Our services cover water monitoring for a number of local councils and private sporting organisations (golf courses etc). This monitoring service provides analysis of water quality at designated times throughout the year (e.g. quarterly). Our staff take water samples, conduct the analysis and provide a comprehensive report, including recommendations. The Government of WA (Department of Water) have an Operational Policy (5.12) for the “Hydrogeological Reporting Associated with a Groundwater Well Licence”. Agrifood Technology offer the analysis of the analytical test suites listed in this policy.

Horticultural Services

Agrifood Technology WA also provides services to a number of horticulturalists who require a holistic analysis service, investigating the nutritional profile of their soil, irrigation water, fertiliser and plant tissue.
