LIMS Water Data

LIMS Water Data - LIMS is a Laboratory Information System developed by LTech Australia.

BRC uses LIMS to record the results of all tests carried out at the Central Laboratory. In the future it may also be used to record the results of a number of additional tests outsourced to other agencies.

Water from locations through out the region (including those listed below) is tested.

  • Bundaberg
  • Kalkie/Bargara/Coral Cove
  • Innes Park
  • River view
  • Moore Park
  • Rocky Point
  • Gooburrum
  • Gin Gin
  • Monduran
  • Childers
  • Woodgate
  • Burnett Heads
  • Wallaville

Source water, reservoir water & reticulation water is analysed for microbiology & physical characteristics.

Microbial tests include:

Physical test include:

Outsourced testing on reticulation water includes:

  • inorganics
  • pesticides
  • total organic carbons
  • MIB/Geosmin
  • metals
  • THMs (trihalomethanes)
  • algae ID & count.

The lab also undertakes environmental monitoring of underground water supplies at Moore Park and Woodgate (bores surrounding the sewerage treatment plant) & Coral cove (bores surrounding the golf course). Bores are tested for faecal coliforms and physical parameters.

LIMS has only been in use since early 2010. Prior to this the results of tests were recorded in Excel spreadsheets. The Excel Spreadsheets are still in use, but will be gradually phased out as we progress with LIMS.
