The city of Comox in British Columbia lies north of Qualicum, on the East coast of central Vancouver Island. Because of the abundant rivers, streams and lakes in the Comox area, its easy to assume that a safe, sufficient supply of water is easily available when water well drilling.

The quantity and quality of surface and groundwater are affected directly by human activity, whether that is land development, resource extraction, water consumption or discharge of pollutants. All of these activities are on the rise in and have an impact on Comox water well drilling. The resulting changes to quantity and quality of water can impact the health of Comox’s ecosystems and in turn affect the quality of groundwater pumped through your water well.

Population growth in the Comox region along with existing land uses continues to put pressure on ground and surface water sources which impacts our watersheds and Comox water well drilling strategies. These impacts have led to changes in many watersheds and ground water sources in a number of areas throughout the region are affected.

Comox is located on the Wrangellia terrane which drifted northward along the earth’s plates until it impacted the westerly moving North American continent. It in turn was rammed by other terranes, thereby creating the unique stacked plate structure of southern Vancouver Island geology. Comox water well drilling requires knowledge of this region’s varied and unique geology as a variety of geological substrates will be encountered when water well drilling.

Many local governments such as Comox are adopting standards to reduce the impacts of urban development on watersheds by managing storm/rainwater in ways that mimic nature – infiltrate, filter, store, evaporate, and retain rainfall runoff close to its source. These innovative approaches to rainwater management have benefits to both surface and underground sources of drinking water as well as for the well-being of streams and water bodies, all of which must be considered when water well drilling in Comox.
