3.5 Groundwater

  1. The FAW concluded that most of the larger wetlands in the subwatershed were discharge or combination discharge/recharge.  Increased infiltration in the southern subwatershed may be required to help preserve that hydrology as that area develops.
  2. As described in Section 2.5.6 and Figure 17, there is a high aquifer sensitivity area in the northern watershed where any stormwater should be pretreated prior to discharge. 
  3. A Wellhead Protection Area and associated Drinking Water Supply Management Area (not yet designated) for a City of Victoria well in the vicinity may be partly located within this subwatershed in the future.  If their delineation includes part of this subwatershed, stormwater management within those areas should be coordinated with wellhead protection plans.
