AquaResource Awarded Tier Three Local Area Risk Assessment Projects!

AquaResource has recently been awarded two Tier Three Local Area Risk Assessments.  These projects, which are part of the Province of Ontario’s Clean Water Act initiatives, will investigate the reliability of municipal water supplies within the Long Point Source Protection Area, and the Upper Thames Source Protection Area.

The Long Point Tier Three project will investigate municipal supplies associated with the communities of Simcoe, Delhi, Waterford; and Tillsonburg.  The Upper Thames Tier Three will investigate the water supplies of Woodstock, Ingersoll, Beachville, St. Marys, and Stratford.  Both projects will aim to better characterize and understand the geologic and hydrogeologic conditions within the water supply aquifers.  Using this enhanced understanding, the reliability of the municipal systems to meet existing and planned water demands will be assessed under a variety of land use and climatic conditions.

For more information on these projects, please contact Sam Bellamy.
