Q-2, r. 6 - Groundwater Catchment Regulation

Full text
1. The object of this Regulation is to
(1)  facilitate the protection of groundwater intended for human consumption; and
(2)  govern groundwater catchment in order to prevent the catchment of that water by an owner or operator from causing abusive nuisance to its neighbours, in particular by lowering the phreatic water level or by reducing the artesian pressure, to prevent the drawing of water in excessive amounts considering its availability, and to minimize the negative impacts from the catchment on watercourses and bodies of water, on the persons entitled to use them and on the ecosystems associated with those watercourses and bodies of water.
