Dec. 5, 2017, Abbotsford, B.C. – The B.C. Ground Water Association has published Version 1 of its Ground Water Protection Regulation Handbook, which is intended to be used as a reference tool for well owners and contractors.

The association's website says the handbook is intended to help well owners and industry practitioners:
  1. Understand their responsibilities in relation to wells as set out by the Groundwater Protection Regulation under the Water Sustainability Act;
  2. Access specific information in relation to well siting, construction, testing, operation, maintenance, deactivation, decommissioning, and reporting using simple language and clear illustrations; and
  3. Gain awareness of industry best practices, additional information sources, and other legislation that relates to the well drilling industry in B.C.
The Handbook was compiled by GW Solutions Inc. and Capewell Design in Nanaimo, B.C.  It is funded in part by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy.
