The Courtenay BC area is rich in water resources. Because of the abundant rivers, streams and lakes in the area, its easy to assume that a safe, sufficient supply of water is easily available when water well drilling.
However, 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 Courtenay and have an impact on water well drilling. The resulting changes to quantity and quality of water can impact the health of Courtenay’s ecosystems and in turn affect the quality of groundwater pumped through your water well.
Population growth in the Courtenay region along with existing land uses continues to put pressure on ground and surface water sources which impacts our watersheds and affects Courtenay 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.
Courtenay water well drilling requires knowledge of the varied and unique geological formations that will be encountered during the various stages of well construction and maintenance.
Many local governments have adopted standards to reduce the impacts of urban development on aquifers 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 water 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 Courtenay.
