A water borehole is a narrow pipe that is drilled into the ground, to a depth that allows it to access an underground water source, called an aquifer. A pump is then used to draw water up to the surface. The borehole can pump can run all of the time, or it can feed tanks to store water for later consumption.

At the time of writing, you do not need a license if you are drawing up to 20m³ (20,000 litres) of water per day. Where usage exceeds this, a water abstraction licence must be applied for. Pumping Solutions are able to offer some advice and guidance on these applications.
