Water

A reliable water supply is a precious resource.  The water quality can be determined for bores, wells, creeks, rivers and farm dams. Common problems include hardness, iron and salinity.  Once your water quality issues have been identified you can plan for water treatments to avoid problems caused by poor water quality.

It is important to identify and correct water quality problems that may affect on-farm use and productivity. Water sources can vary from season to season and need to be monitored routinely. You will notice any obvious changes or potential issues.  If you have any doubts about the quality of water you intend to use for irrigation, stock or domestic purposes, you should grab a sample or ask East West to sample for you and get it tested.
