    Hi Thomas,

    To clarify, when we mentioned Northern Cairns aquifer, we’re referring to the location of the water bores and not specifically to the name of the aquifer site. We don’t have the information on exact number and specific areas of the water bores, but this resource might help you locate the privately registered bores between the Barron River and Palm Cove on the coast.

    In designing the groundwater monitoring tool, you may assume you’re performing a hydrogeological assessment on the existing water bores to establish the baseline data. The tool’s portability is essential if you’re measuring from one borehole to another.

    Also, in designing the groundwater monitoring tool, it might be good to have some background reading of the construction requirements for water bores in Australia.

    I hope this helps.
