Groundwater is a natural resource that requires protection to ensure it is sustained for present and future users; therefore, the City of Saskatoon is developing methods to protect groundwater within Saskatoon. City Administration intends to put forward a proposal to:
Regulate or prohibit private groundwater wells for domestic purposes within City limits through a bylaw, and;
Encourage or require the decommissioning of non-active groundwater wells in City and private properties within City limits.
We would like to invite you to provide your feedback on the importance of groundwater protection in Saskatoon and the options we are proposing through an online survey.
The Stakeholder Survey will be available until August 23, 2021.
We estimate the survey will take around 8 mins to complete. Additional engagement opportunities will be held throughout August and September 2021.
For more information on the Options for Groundwater Protection project please visit the City of Saskatoon Engage Page.
We look forward to hearing from you!
