spend $211,849 to find more well water.
City council approved retaining International Water Supply Ltd. as its
well development specialist. IWS has developed all the city’s well
fields in the past 70 years.
“Consequently, IWS has extensive knowledge and background data of the
city’s aquifer system and its capacity. IWS specializes in
hydrogeological studies, municipal well design/construction and the
assesment of ground-water impact,” said the city’s engineering director
Rick Newlove. “They are the only company that we know that offers both
contracting and consulting services. These measures will help ensure
the protection of the city’s multi-million-dollar drinking water
investment.” Newlove added the city needs to expand its wells to meet
growth outlinedin the city’s Official Plan. Its aquifer system needs to
be developed and serving at capacity by 2007, he added, and a surface
water treatment plant - planned for the Big Bay Point Road area east of
Hewitt’s Creek - is designed to augment water supply beyond 2007.

I had an
opportunity to get up to the Prospect Park well while the guys were
great guys, and they gave me an educational lesson on the well, which
was very much appreciated.
I definitely learned a lot in the time I was there.
