sun symbol water protectionjaffray_rep Ground water is an essential and vital resource for many residents of British Columbia and provides numerous households with water for drinking and washing.
In recent years, events affecting ground water quality have heightened public awareness and concern about the importance and vulnerability of the resource.
Any addition of undesirable substances to ground water caused by human activities is considered to be contamination.
This legislation provides a detailed and comprehensive framework for drinking water protection.
Most of the legislation will be administered by the BC Ministry of Health Services and the Regional Health Authorities (Interior Health).
Ground Water Protection Regulations were passed under the provincial Water Act in July 2004. water, soils. groundwater This is the report from the second of the workshops, held March 21 and 22, 2002, and co-chaired by NWRI and the British Columbia Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection.
Natural Groundwater Contamination - Not all substances in groundwater are harmful to human health are man-made substances. Canadian Framework for Collaboration on Groundwater - A National Ad-hoc Committee on Groundwater has developed a Framework focused on: acquiring a high standard of groundwater information and knowledge; improving communications and collaboration among all groundwater stakeholders; establishing effective linkages of groundwater information systems; providing a resource base accessible to all levels of government and stakeholders; and fostering national consistency with respect to groundwater standards, guidelines, qualifications of professions and drillers, and training. groundwater, science. 1.pdf NOTE: The concepts and ideas presented in this framework are the responsibility of the members of the National Ad Hoc Committee on Groundwater and do not necessarily represent the views of any government or nongovernment agency.

acquiring a high standard of groundwater information and knowledge; improving communications and collaboration among all agencies and organizations involved in groundwater activities; establishing effective linkages of groundwater-information systems; and providing a resource base accessible to all levels of government for the development of groundwatermanagement policy.
Canada's valuable groundwater resources are very significant, but groundwater is less known and understood than surface water because it is hidden from view.
The Framework will address the groundwater quantity and quality priorities in each jurisdiction, so as to include regional concerns.
Provincial ministries of environment and other provincial agencies, as well as federal agencies such as Natural Resources Canada and Environment Canada, have expertise in groundwater studies.
One of the greatest challenges for the Canadian Groundwater Advisory Council (CGAC) is defining its scope.
A National Groundwater Inventory doesnot have to be a stand-aloneproject. Rather,itcouldbebuiltby provincial and national agencies in the course of discharging their regular obligations through the adoption of a standardized workflow. The standardized workflow would bedesigned to generate the data for the Inventory as a byproduct of regular government activities.
Canada's groundwater resources are threatened by a variety of natural and anthropogenic activities.

Those that address specific and localized problems Those that support longterm and regional ground water-resourceassessments Monitoring programs that address¬ specific and localized problems¬ or issues are typically very local¬ ized within the vicinity of the¬ problem, and monitoring is rela¬ tively short term, being under-¬ taken only for the duration of the¬ problem. groundwater, industry.   Drinking Water - Public Health Protection The Drinking Water Program provides expert advice to Health Authorities, and develops legislation, guidelines and policies on drinking water.

British Columbia is committed to improving and protecting the province's drinking water system.
