You will be required to comply with these requirements if you intend to construct or maintain a ground-monitoring well. These requirements outline the minimum standards for constructing, maintaining, rehabilitating, and decommissioning water bores in Australia. These aid with protecting groundwater resources from contamination, which in this case could come from underground petroleum storage systems.
