Domestic well water quality in regions of Alberta : physical & chemical testing

Description

Under the framework of the Alberta Water for Life Strategy initiative, Alberta Health initiated a domestic well water quality monitoring and human health assessment program in 2009. This report presents the findings of a project undertaken in 2010 and 2011 as part of this program, which involved monitoring domestic well water quality in eleven selected regions where more intensive agricultural activities are present. The objectives of this project were to: assess long-term suitability of domestic well water quality for well owners; collect information on drinking water consumption patterns; assist well owners through education to improve well water quality; and build a better understanding of domestic well water quality in specific regions of the province.
