Chemainus Wells Project

British Columbia

Description: The District of North Cowichan (DNC) is proposing to construct a groundwater supply system for the community of Chemainus. The groundwater supply system will replace the Banon Creek Reservoir that currently supplies water for the community. This project will require the construction of three production wells, a water main, a concrete reservoir and associated ancillary facilities. This project is being assessed cooperatively with the BC Environmental Assessment Office. Additional information about the project can be obtained by visiting their website.

Decision of the Minister of the Environment: Canada's Environment Minister, Jim Prentice, announced that the proposed Chemainus Well Water Supply Project in Chemainus, British Columbia, is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
