SOURCE WATER ASSESSMENT & PROTECTION

Western Water

Providers of public drinking water supplies who utilize groundwater need to work in partnership with health authorities, provincial ministries and members of the local community to protect their groundwater supplies. Effective protection requires an understanding of the local geology and hydrogeology and identifying the potential threats to groundwater quality. Western Water has an extensive background in all aspects of groundwater source assessment and groundwater protection planning. This includes technical tasks such as delineating aquifer recharge and/or well capture zones, contaminant source inventories, and facilitation of technical advisory committees overseeing the development and implementation of protection plans.

Recent source protection projects for which Western Water has played a lead role include the Silver Star Resort water system, the new groundwater-based system at Fintry B.C. operated by the Regional District of Central Okanagan, and the high capacity groundwater well systems operated by the Okanagan Falls Irrigation District, Big Eddy Waterworks District and the Town of Oliver.
