POLICY & GUIDELINE DEVELOPMENT

Western Water

Western Water hydrogeologists have contributed toward the development of regulations, guidelines and policies pertaining to the management of groundwater resources. This work is sometimes a direct outgrowth of the support we provide to assist communities in the protection of their groundwater supplies. Examples of relevance to local government include the Groundwater Bylaws Toolkit published by the Okanagan Basin Water Board in 2009 and providing input into updated subdivision servicing bylaws and growth management strategies. At the provincial level, we have participated in the B.C. Water Act Modernization; B.C. Guidelines for the Assessment of Groundwater Under Direct Influence of Surface Water (GWUDI) and the development of Guidelines for Water Well Testing in Northeastern Alberta and Groundwater Modeling Guidelines, again for the province of Alberta.
