"Ground water can become contaminated by many of the same pollutants that contaminate surface water."
A drilled well is a mainstay for many Canadians, with 30 percent of residents, or nine million residents, within Canada obtaining their water from a ground water source. Approximately 15 percent of this water is within rural areas and some parts of the country rely on ground water exclusively.
A water sample should be taken for comparison against the Canadian Drinking Water Quality Guidelines.
