    There are a few things that catch my eye.Not being an engineer or planner or geologist this is just from a practical and basic knowledge of how wells and aquifers work.

    The 75 metre requirement seems a bit short, it is from the well, a well is merely a piece of pipe in the ground, it is the aquifer that matters.

    Also what remediations are written if a problem occurs?

    As for the 2 year liability, that too seems a bit shy, as it sometimes takes years for a problem to show itself, especially in relation to volumes. We have had some good rains that keep the aquifers charged, but a drought would put considerable strain on a supply and adding houses to the draw from the system increases the chances of drying it up.

    Item #3 regarding the aquifer requiring precipitation to keep the aquifer sustained.this means that the development must be done in such a way that 2 things must be prevented. 1. Non-permeable surface ie hard surfaces covering must be such that the water is able to percolate thru the surface to the aquifer. 2 any change of slopes or landscape must prevent water from running away from the aquifer.

    Maybe someone else can shed more light on this.

    I would like to thank both Scott and Justin for taking the time to look into the water situation. We need all the help we can get.

    This was on the news tonight. The residents were served with paperwork about the OMB hearing. Jake will be talking to them in the next few days.
