Salt Spring Island Groundwater Study: Call for Well Owner Volunteers
Islands Trust and Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development are collaborating on a project to:
- increase information for well owners,
- to support the Provincial Groundwater Observation Network,
- participate in other Water Sustainability and Water Balance initiatives through SSIWPA
Groundwater monitoring stations will be industry standard automatic water level monitoring device, installed by a professional well pump installer. Staff will visit the site 3-4 times over the year to download information.
The pilot project has potential to result in more long term community volunteer well monitoring on SSI, similar to the Nanaimo volunteer observation well program.
To volunteer your well please send inquiries to SSIWPA Coordinator Shannon Cowan at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 250-653-4867.
