What is source water protection

What is Source Water Protection?

  • Sourcewateris untreated water from streams, lakes, rivers or underground aquifers that people use to supply private wells and public drinking water systems.

  • Source water protection is simply protecting water sources such as lakes, rivers, streams and groundwater sources from contamination or overuse.

Swp and the aggregate industry

SWP and the Aggregate Industry

  • Water Quantity (Water Budgets)

  • Water Takings

    • Ground to surface water sources 100% consumptive use

    • Aggregate washing & pits & quarry dewatering 25% consumptive use if returned to same source

  • Significant Recharge Areas

    • Identified as important sources of recharge for a municipal groundwater aquifer

  • Water Quality

    • Threats and Issues

      • Not a specific prescribed threat

      • Non-specific activities associated with the aggregate industry may be threats (ie. storage of liquid fuel)

    • Highly Vulnerable Aquifers

      • Aquifers identified as being susceptible to contamination from surface activities

    • Well Head Protection Areas (WHPAs)

      • Vulnerability assessed on overburden
