The Kamloops BC area is built on a mosaic of different geological materials, each with unique variables that need to be considered when water well drilling.

European settlement of the Kamloops area goes back to the mid 1800’s and with all human activity the quantity and quality of surface and groundwater have been affected through land development, resource extraction, well water consumption or discharge of pollutants.
All of these activities are on the rise in the region and have an impact on Kamloops water well drilling. The resulting changes to quantity and quality of water can impact the health of Kamloops’s ecosystems and in turn affect the quality of groundwater pumped through your water well.

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

Kamloops 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. Mudstone and volcanic rock underlies much of the Kamloops region, which was once ocean seafloor 270 million years ago.

While municipal facilities in the city of Kamloops manage the local water supply, waste water, organic solid wastes and solid waste and recycling, in outlying regions of Kamloops water well drilling is in high demand. While local governments are working to manage storm/rainwater in ways that mimic nature – infiltrate, filter, store, evaporate, and retain rainfall runoff close to its source – the individual private well owner in the Kamloops region can also implement innovative approaches to water management that have benefits to both surface and underground sources of drinking water.
