    Question: Are there any legal requirements for having a borehole. For example do I need permission to have a borehole and are there license or any other fees?

    Response: This varies from State to State. In WA, we are very fortunate that you don’t require a licence from the Department of Water for a bore that is for domestic purposes including garden use for a property that is under 0.2ha.

    This is set out in detail in Department of Water policy documents.

    In other States, regulation varies, and so do costs.
