Following concerns raised in Bass Coast Shire’s Domestic Waste Water Management Plan, Westernport Water is working with the Shire to test the quality of the groundwater in the Silverleaves area.
The plan is to set up a number of test bores and then sample and test the quality of the groundwater over a four month period. The bores will be established on road reserve land prior to Christmas.
Bore hole drilling in Silverleaves is due to commence Friday, 9 December and will be completed by Friday, 16 December 2011. Subsequent testing will continue until mid April 2012.
